WORKSHOPS

COLORED CLAY WORKSHOPS

My workshops are excellent for all levels of clay experience. Whether you are fairly new or very experienced, you will find yourself challenged and excited by your discovery of the incredible options colored clays and slips will add to your work.

Learning to use colored clays and slips is fast and fun. You will leave the class  abuzz with your own ideas for pushing your work further into color, pattern and surface design.

Judith Skinner invented the Skinner Blend method for use with polymer clays, but I have found it translates quite well to use with earthen clays.

My workshops teach the Skinner method of coloring earthen clay, mixing slips, creating secondary colors, fading colors, creating canes and patterns, then using these patterns in work.

I can't even begin to tell you how much I enjoyed your class last week. I learned so much and I'm dreaming of projects every night. You did such an amazing job with prep and the demos and everything else. Your passion for colored clay is wonderful. I felt so fortunate to get the opportunity to participate. Thank you!

"It was a such a pleasure to work with you and to have you share your expertise here this weekend. What a well organized workshop! I am enjoying hearing positive student comments. Not everyone has so much patience. Thank you."  Analia Howard, Claymakers, Durham NC


"THANK YOU for a delightful class .You are a wonderful instructor - patient, knowledgeable, creative and fun." Nancy Germond  


" When I signed up for the workshop, I knew I would learn something useful, but didn’t really think I would want to use your techniques in my own work. All I’ve done since then is think about what patterns I can make and how to use them.” Carmela Picone

“ WOW!" For those of you who missed Chris Campbell’s Colored Clay Workshop, take it if you have another opportunity ... Chris did a fantastic job of explaining her technique of coloring the clay.She was very free with her knowledge in all areas of pottery as well as with her own techniques and strongly encouraged us to use these methods in our own work. The workshop was made even more enjoyable by the fact that Chris obviously enjoyed teaching."  CDA, Norfolk VA
