2-Day Hands-on Workshop with Cecily Fortescue in Stuart Florida
The Pottery of Carlee Weston & Friends, will be hosting a two day, hands-on,
Handbuilding Workshop being taught by Cecily Fortescue of New York.
Known for her large slab-built works, Cecily's work is collected on an
international level. As every potter knows, simplicity is the hardest thing to
achieve. Cecily has achieved this with forms both organic and architectural.
To see Cecily's work, please go to my website, www.carleeweston.com, click on
the Events link and follow that to Cecily's website. I think you will agree
that her work is unique and exciting.
This workshop will focus on handbuilding using hand rolled slab construction.
Problems of construction, attachments and stability will be emphasized. Pieces
constructed in the workshop will remain at the Pottery until dry, when they will
be bisque fired to cone 04 as part of the Workshop package. (Please note,
although the Pottery will make every effort to care for the works, the Pottery
will in no way be held liable for any damages to the works being bisqued.
Participants will have one week after notification that their pieces are fired
to pick them up.
