At this 10 day workshop we will be exploring different techniques of kiln casting. We will start with a simple relief design and get to the more complicated 3d forms in the process.
We will be cold working our own pieces and get a lot of cultural and theorical information about kiln casting techniques and the amazing artists that graduated from Kamenický Šenov.
