Academy Mask Policy – Winter 2022 *updated Jan 5, 2022

 

Due to the rise in Covid cases in our area, the Academy Center of the Arts requires that all students participating in our classes  regardless of vaccination status wear a mask while on our campus.  All staff are required to wear masks while on site regardless of vaccination status.

 


Come learn to throw off the hump in this two-day pottery workshop with our expert instructor Bosco Bae! On day one, we will first develop intermediate skillset by learning the mechanics for throwing off the hump by making bowls with studio clay for ‘Empty Bowls’. We will then break for an hour for lunch. Afterwards, we will throw – off the hump – pieces for a teapot. On day two, we will trim and assemble the pieces for our teapots.  We will meet on Saturday, February 12 (10:00 – 3:00) and Saturday, February 19 from 12:00 – 2:00
*some wheel throwing experience required
*recycled studio clay will be used for empty bowls
*10 lbs of clay will be provided to use for teapot

“To make pottery is an adventure to me, every work is a new beginning. Indeed, I shall never cease to be a pupil.” -Lucie Rie

Bosco began his journey with clay and the wheel in 1998. They have since become indispensable companions, teachers, and interlocutors in his life and finding a pottery studio, wherever he lives, is a constant priority. Bosco enjoys making functional as well as experimental and sculptural work. He joins the Academy Center of the Arts after working and experiencing studios in Salt Lake City, Boston, Chicago, Icheon, Tokyo, Prague, and Johannesburg. Bosco is also a Visiting Assistant Professor at the University of Lynchburg.
