Large Scale Clay Masterclass with
For more than 25 years, Alexandra Engelfriet has worked with huge amounts of raw clay. Her artistic approach is very physical. In large indoor installations and outdoor locations, she uses her whole body to sculpt clay. Alexandra will create a large scale raw clay installation in the industrial setting of STARworks as part of the Woodfire Conference (June 8 - 11). This four-day masterclass will take place in the same space with a large amount of wild North Carolina clay from a local quarry.
Participants will work with a large amount of clay on the floor and with a thick layer of clay on a table, immersing oneself fully in the material, working with hands and arms in the confined space of the table. The clay will be kept wet and workable so it can be used over and over again.
The emphasis is placed on the physical and performative aspects of working with clay rather than on the result, allowing new ways of working with clay to emerge.
