SLAB VISION BOX WORKSHOP
with Lisa Kurtz,
Sunday, May 27 and Saturday, June 16, 12:00 – 4:00 p.m.
Get inspired and motivated in this 2 session clay workshop led by Knoxville potter Lisa Kurtz. Lisa will teach students to make their own clay slab vision box to depict goals and dreams in all areas of their lives, or in just one specific area that they are focusing on. They will create items out of clay to glue into the box as well as bring in mixed media found objects, pictures, and other handmade objects. In the first session, students will decide on a theme and plan for their boxes and create their slab clay boxes and other clay items to be put into their boxes. In between sessions, the boxes will be fired and at the next session students will paint and decorate their boxes with the items made out of clay and other found and homemade objects. Completed vision boxes can be hung on the wall or placed in a special place in the home as visual reminders of what you are working towards in your life. Whether you are a beginner with no clay experience, had some clay experience or are advanced, all are welcome to join this creative clay workshop. Lisa has a Masters degree in Ceramics and currently teaches clay at Pellissippi State in Knoxville Tn. She has been a professional potter for 40 years.
