About the Workshop

This workshop on the basics of working with clay will cover its composition, its preparation, and its application in both hand-built and wheel-thrown practices. The session will include demonstrations as well as in-process assistance, and by the end of class you’ll have created a ceramic work of your own. No previous clay experience is required. Work can be picked up after it dries and has been fired.

About the Instructor

Mark Kozma started working with ceramics in 2007 at Central Michigan University, where he received a Bachelor of Applied Arts in 2011. He continued his ceramic education by apprenticing with Mark Hewitt from 2012-14. Mark works in other media, as well, balancing ceramics, woodwork, and massage therapy in order to sustain his life as an independent artist.

About the Location

This workshop will take place in the Duke Arts Annex.
