Featured Project: Print on Clay
Taught by Phoenix Lindsey-Hall, Director of Shops at Powerhouse and Sara Gates, Owner of Kingsland Printing, participants explored printing directly onto 2D clay slabs and indirect printing on 3D forms. They worked on self-guided themes with technical and conceptual support from instructors and peers. Participants learned to create several test pieces and produced one to two final works.
This marked the first adult education class offering, a critical milestone for the Education program and Powerhouse. The goal was to exercise the kind of material adjacencies that we undertake at Powerhouse, offering flexibility and hybridity with our techniques and materials. The class also successfully piloted our Pay-What-You-Want fee structure, intended to reduce barriers for participation.
