The Prince George Potters' Guild is pleased to present a workshop with Huang Fei from Jingdezhen, China. The hands-on workshop will demonstrate Chinese blue-on-white painting on porcelain, provide information on the use and handling of Chinese brushes, and include discussions on identifying ceramics through the range of dynasties. This workshop will be held in three-hour sessions once a week for four weeks (6:30pm - 9:30pm). This will allow participants to review their pieces between sessions, to see their finished work, and allow for critiques. Huang Fei had a chance meeting with Walter Ostrom when he was a young man. The meeting changed his perspective and his way of thinking about life and art. Huang Fei’s tenacity, perseverance and work ethic has led him to be a very successful artist in Chinese blue-on-white painting on porcelain and landscape painting. His engaging teaching style in the art of Qing Hua is a fascinating way to share Chinese history through cobalt painting.
The workshop fees is $200 and includes:
• Slide presentation: November 7, 2014 at 7pm in the Jack Bryant Room
• four three-hour sessions - 6:30pm - 9:30pm
• 1 box of pure-white porcelain
• 2 Chinese brushes
• bisque and glaze firing for 10 pieces.
Max 15 participants - open to all members and skill levels!

Elaine Brewer-White • Ceramic Sculpture
March 13 - March 15, 2015

With this three-day course we will be exploring gesture and the gure. Elaine will share her techniques of building hollow forms which are then altered and added on to. She will discuss proportion, movement, and texture - and how to access new ideas through creative thinking. She will also demonstrate how she approaches color and how color choices aect a sculpture. Warning: Elaine is prone to 'over-sharing' - and laughter may be an unavoidable byproduct of this class.
Elaine Brewer-White is a ceramic sculptor who had been practising this art form for more than 30 years. Her work is in collections both private and corporate world wide. Her body of work ranges from ceramic installations, wall murals to 3D family portraits. Working with clay is a life long passion for Elaine, as are the constant themes of color, movement and life.
The workshop fees is $200 and includes:
• Slide presentation: March 13, 2015 at 7pm in the Jack Bryant Room
• Hands on workshop - 9:30am - 3:30pm - Friday, Saturday & Sunday
