Hayne Bayless Hand-building Workshop Jan 14 & 15, 2023

Hayne Bayless: Happiness is a Warm Extruder

Two-day demonstration and hands-on workshop, Sat & Sun 10-4, Jan 14 & 15, 2023

We’ll explore extrusion and slab techniques in our quest to make anything-but-round functional stoneware. Our approach will be to let the process show in the work; if we stay out of clay’s way, the material will reveal its nature and our results will remain fresh and lively.  We will work with unconventional forming methods and unusual approaches to surface decoration. This workshop will also interest throwers who’d like to expand their horizons beyond the wheel.

Topics include:

  • combining extrusions and slabs
  • making hand tools and brushes
  • latex resist decoration
  • cutting and printing with stencils made from Tyvek
  • colored slip inlay and stretched slabs
  • the basics of making custom extruder dies

$225 including 25lbs of clay per student
