Description: This class is an introductory level handbuilding course for those who have heard the call to cultivate a creative practice, but don’t know where to start. The focal point of this class is to develop the necessary skills to build anything from a precious coffee mug, to a candle ombre, to a goddess figure, to an abstract splat. In the process of learning the language of clay, you will simultaneously be guided gently in trusting your intuition. Intuition is that palpable yet ineffable “gut feeling” which, if listened to and collaborated with, can open up the mass of potential stored within us all. Learning a new thing can at times be intimidating, but around the corner of every new path is immense beauty and discovery. If you’re searching, this is your answer… your world awaits!

Instructor: Faryn Fee

About your instructor: Faryn Fee received a Bachelor of Fine Art from Paris College of Art in France. Whilst studying she took a year abroad to Brooklyn, New York to focus on ceramics and metaphysics at Pratt Institute. Since graduating she has been in a dedicated independent studio practice developing her visual language. Being that she developed a very tight bond to clay through classical training, her practice is one of breaking the mold of orthodox treatment of clay while involving a culmination of materials such as paper mache, plaster, resins as well as natural materials like algae, moss, mycelium and more. With a deep respect for the ancient medium that is clay, she values very deeply the intuitive nature of the experience of working with it. Which is why as a teacher her specialty and love is developing each person’s unique expressive language with clay.
