SATURDAY, MAY 29 – JULY 10, 2021
10:00AM – 12:00PM PT / 1:00-3:00PM ET
Instructor: Seong Weon Joanne Lee
Experience the meditative process of coiling at home! During these 4 weeks, Joanne will be teaching how to effectively roll thin coils and use them to build basic forms to complex forms, building up to cylindrical jars inspired by traditional Korean Moon Jars! Any clay type can be used for this technique, however porcelain is the most challenging.
May 29, Week 1: Basic Form-Cup and Tall Cylinder.
During this class, we will be learning how to roll uniform coils and use them to make cups and cylinders. This is the foundation class for making more complex forms.
June 12, Week 2: V-shaped bowls -How to effectively control the forms.
We will be exploring V shape bowls. The focus will be to practice how to handle thin coils while making open shape with a foot. You will also learn how to effectively use the banding wheel and ribs.
June 26, Week 3: Cone shaped vases
The focus will be to practice how to handle thin coils while making a truncated cone shape with a flat bottom. You will also learn how to effectively use the banding wheel and ribs.
July 10, Week 4: Complex Form-Moon Jar/Round Vase.
During this class, you will combine what we learned in the first three weeks to make “Moon Jar”. If you are an experienced coil builder you can take week 4 class as a singular workshop.
All students will receive the Zoom recording of the workshop to watch at their convenience after the workshop. Many participants choose to observe the virtual workshop and work later, but you may also work alongside Joanne during the demo.
Supply List Available HERE.
$50 session #4 only, for advanced students.
