This Saturday, March 17th, the Schack Art Center in Everett invites the community to participate in "Connecting with Clay" a day of hands-on demonstrations and free lectures from 10am – 7pm.
Sessions include, "Paper Clay Magic: making pages for a clay book" with June Haddox," Building Pots Piece by Piece – using pieces of the textured slabs to build clay vessels" with Roger Cocke, and "Clay Totems: concept, composition & construction" with Maria Root.
All the workshops and lectures are free, but preregistration is required for several. A complete list is available at schack.org
Workshops aren’t just for adults either. Youth are invited, with an accompanying adult, to participate in "Faces in the Mud: a hands-on family activity making masks" with sessions at 10am and 1pm.
Even if you don’t feel like sitting in on a lecture or workshop you can still fire your own Raku pot. Choose a plain bisque pot, glaze it, and then have it fired in a Raku kiln at the Schack for only $25. The last firing will be at 5pm on Saturday.
"Connecting with Clay" coincides with the Schack’s current exhibit "Embracing the Edge: Working in Clay in the Pacific Northwest" featuring the Cascade Clay Artists through April 19th.
