Clayworks is a non-profit organization dedicated to the promotion of ceramic arts, advancement of artists and students and enrichment of the communities it serves. One of our teaching artists will travel to your school with all of the supplies necessary to lead the program of your choice. We will take care of drying and firing the projects at our facility on Monroe Road.
While most workshops and residencies are designed to have 1.5 hours to work, we understand that not all schools have that amount of time. Our coordinator will work with the ASCAR and teacher to design a program that will fit within your schools class times.
4506 Monroe Road, Charlotte, NC 28205
The making of southern face jugs is a ceramic tradition that has been dated back to the 1840’s. This pottery tradition continues to be of significant interest for many contemporary potters living in the South. Students will develop an understanding of potters and their traditions. They will then apply their knowledge of clay and folk art as they create pinch pots with coils and add decorative facial features to create a face jug.
Workshops: Students will create a face jug using different techniques
Residencies: Students will have the opportunity to see and study images of a variety of face jugs and have a more in depth review of the history. With the expanded time, students will have the time go create more detailed face jugs.
The projects will be taken back to Clayworks to dry and be fired before being returned to the school. Please allow up to 3 weeks for delivery.
