DukeCreate: Ceramics, The Perfect Cup


Please login to enroll in this event.


Reserve your seat in this workshop by enrolling here. If the event is full, you will be added to the waitlist.

About the workshop:

Come make a tumbler or mug that represents you! Students will use a pattern to create a slab-built cup from start to finish. Stamps and other decorative elements will be provided to customize the outside surface of the cup. If students desire, they may leave their finished cup to be bisque-fired and come back on their own time to glaze their cup. After the glaze firing students can come pick up their finished and totally functional cup!

About the instructor:

A born and raised Durhamite, Anna Wallace has been getting her hands dirty in clay and other materials since her time at the Durham School of the Arts. She went on to earn her BFA in Ceramics at the Cleveland Institute of Art. The incredibly strong undergraduate program taught Anna the importance of quality and craftsmanship. In order to further inform her practice she supplemented her education with classes at the Penland School of Crafts and spent time in Paris and other European cities studying historical and contemporary art. Anna recently received her MFA at UNC Greensboro. The interdisciplinary program challenged her to think critically about material choices and to strengthen the aesthetic and conceptual issues in her work. Anna now teaches around the Triangle and Triad, including UNCG and the North Carolina Governor's School West.
