This summer at Watershed, members of Objective Clay will offer a one-and-a-half day workshop for the public.  They will perform demonstrations and discuss the connections in their practices between food and handmade ceramics.  As more chefs and home kitchen cooks place importance on what their food is served on, not only where their food comes from, ceramic makers are finding new partnerships and places to share their work with an engaged audience. During the workshop, each Objective Clay member will give a one-hour demonstration and talk for the group, showcasing his or her individual techniques and philosophies.

The workshop will include demonstrations and discussions rather than hands-on studio time.  Participants will have the opportunity to informally talk with Objective Clay members and other artists-in-residence at Watershed during the one-and-a-half day session.  Lunch will be provided on Thursday, July 7. Watershed cannot provide housing during the workshop but can advise participants on local accommodations.

Objective Clay members leading the workshop include: Lindsay Oesterritter, Emily Schroeder Willis, Bryan Hopkins, Deb Schwartzkopf, gwendolyn yoppolo, Jennifer Allen, Kip O’Krongly, Shawn Spangler, and Sunshine Cobb
