VPA 502: eTextile Basics: Part I

Prerequisite(s): none
As part of the growing interest of STEM into STEAM, these courses/workshops use of technology as a tool for creative expression and also represent ideal ways to build hands-on skills for your students.

These hands-on classes will give us one of the fundamental aspects of electronic textiles ¿ understanding a simple, parallel circuit. We will use conductive thread, sewable LED lights, and small batteries to lay the foundation for further explorations into this incredibly diverse and growing field of textiles. Learn the fundamental aspects of electronic textiles ¿a simple circuit, parallel circuit and a closed circuit. Use basic hand sewing skills with conductive thread, sewable LED lights, and small batteries to lay the foundation for further explorations into this incredibly diverse and growing field of textiles.

VPA 511: Texturing Ceramics Surfaces

Prerequisite(s): none
In this three-day workshop, we will explore different techniques for creating imagery and texture on ceramics surfaces. We will use both traditional clay tools as well as found objects and household items. Focus will be on creating unique textures that enhance the overall ceramic form. On the first day, students will construct their clay objects, either by hand building or on the potter¿s wheel. On the second day, students will make texture sample slabs, then apply texture to their sculpted objects. On the third day, students will add color if desired and finish with texture application. Emphasis will be on the stages of drying as they affect the workability of the clay. We will discuss which techniques to use at different stages in order to maximize visual and tactile effect. Some experience in ceramics is helpful but not necessary.

VPA 513: Advanced Hand Building in Clay

Prerequisite(s): none
In this three-day workshop, we will cover techniques for building complex forms in clay. We will discuss how drying time affects the structural integrity of the material and how to use it to our advantage. We will also cover different methods for adding strength to the building process, including internal armatures, props, and material additives to the clay body itself. The final day will consist of post-firing assembly of complex ceramic structures, and will cover the use of epoxies, water-based putties, and air-drying clays as materials to complement the ceramic forms. To accommodate drying and firing times, the workshop will need to be spread over two consecutive weekends. The first weekend will consist of the two days of sculpting, and the second weekend will consist of assembly of fired objets. Previous hand building experience in clay, including coil and slab techniques is required.
