POSTPONED: In light of the new health order issued by the County of Sonoma, we are postponing in-person indoor classes until mid-February.

NEW DATE AND TIME:

FRIDAYS, MARCH 4-APRIL 1, 2022 (MARCH 4, 11, 18*, 25, APRIL 1 ; there will be no instruction on March 18th, but the studio will be open to students for work time)
10:00AM-1:00PM PT 

Instructor:  Megan Billingham

Location: Studio 117

In this upper-level 4-week class class, Megan will coach students to realize an idea from start to finish through individual guidance and demonstrations. Participants are expected to bring a concept to the class for a singular investigation into making a new body of work or executing an idea – both hand builders and throwers are welcome to this class. This class is perfect for those who want to continue learning and working in a class format but on their own individual projects and ideas, looking for support from Megan for problem solving

Please bring a sketchbook and images of your ideas to hit the ground running! Through a series of demos, class discussions, and experimentation you will be able to get from A to B over the course of this 4 week advanced studio class.

Megan Billingham

Instructor, Interim Director of Ceramics

Megan Billingham (she/they) is an artist and clay worker based in Northern California. They use experiential methods of creating, substantiated by therapeutic arts to facilitate simple, accessible interactions that foster practices in collective care and communal intimacy.

Megan received their BFA in Ceramics with self minors in Performance and Art Therapy from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 2020.

They work mainly with self-harvested wild clays and atmospheric firings, with multiple years of wood and wood-salt firing experience. In their work, they seek to expand the notion of function, making both traditionally functional as well as performative wares inspired by historical concepts of movement, transition, and portability. Megan is deeply invested in facilitating communal practices and group learning environments, believing that sharing is one of our most fundamental acts of conscious loving.
