In this 5-day workshop, participants will work with Carole Epp to develop and explore narrative in functional and/or sculptural work. Beginning with design considerations, storytelling, and concept development, this workshop will give the students the confidence and skills to bring their ideas to life. Ongoing feedback demos and slideshows will round out the class as well as some social media discussions throughout, drawing from Carole’s extensive knowledge with online communities. A minimum level of experience is required as many hand-building, slip-casting, wheel throwing and surface decoration techniques will be covered during the week, but class is suited to a variety of skill levels.

About Carole

Twenty years after taking my first ceramics class in college I’m still just as compelled and excited by this material as I was back then. Working in ceramics has allowed me to travel internationally to meet and work with some of the most inspiring creative minds out there. Back in 2005 I obtained my graduate degree from the Australian National University. I currently live in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan working in a home based studio creating both functional objects and a line of figurative sculpture. Due to workaholic tendencies and a passion for community I’ve been the editor of Musing about Mud for over ten years, have brought together groups like Make and Do ceramics to highlight the wealth of creative ceramics here in Canada, traveled to teach workshops, give talks, exhibit work, and basically don’t say no to anything clay related that is worth promoting and getting involved with. All of which makes me happier then I ever imagined.
