Handbuilding with Clay with Erik Wold
Refresh with a new creative outlet at our open and spacious ceramics studio located in a unique rainforest setting at Volcano Art Center’s Niaulani Campus in Volcano Village.
Teaching artist, Erik Wold, will provide instruction for this eight-week workshop in which we will explore a variety of handbuilding techniques including methods of pinch, coil and slab construction. Stoneware clay will be used and finished with professional quality glazes to be high-fired in a gas reduction kiln (cone 9). Firing schedules may vary, depending on accumulation of wares to be fired.
$200/$180 VAC members plus a $30 materials fee which includes the first 6 lbs. of clay (including glazes, firing, labor) along with a facility fee. Additional clay will be available for purchase.
Our open and well ventilated studio includes a covered outdoor work area. Open studio time will be available to registered students on most Wednesdays from 1:30 – 4:30pm. Cost is $10 per day with punch cards available at the administration office front desk during business hours. Must be registered for a ceramics class to participate.
Erik Wold studied Art, specializing in Ceramics, at the University of Hawaii at Hilo.
