In this class students will develop their own ideas, or work with traditional designs, to create one of a kind clay tiles. Many techniques will be explored to add different surface textures to the tiles. Plaster molds will be available to add a 3 D effect to your tiles. Proper glazing techniques will be covered in depth. No previous clay experience is required. COST: $99.99 plus GST and materials. Firing of projects is included.

Traditional Majolica pieces were modeled in high relief from low fired clay featuring butterflies and other insects, flowers and leaves, fruit, shells, animals and fish. The bisque fired clay is covered by an opaque background enamel made from a metal-oxide. When this glaze has dried, the design elements on the piece are painted with brightly coloured glazes and the piece is fired again. COST: $ 99.99 plus GST and materials. Firing of projects is included.

St. Norbert Arts CentreBaby Clown Intensive Workshop, Jan. 13-28 BABY CLOWN INTENSIVEinstructed by John Turner
This 16 day workshop (over 100 hours) is based on the Pochinko technique (Baby Clown). Richard Pochinko was a Canadian visionary who developed a style of creative exploration drawing on three traditions: American circus clown, European clowning and North American Aboriginal mask work. This workshop is not just for performers. Performers, writers, musicians, dancers, therapists, teachers, health care workers, carpenters, business people and more have benefi ted from the creative-horizon-expanding nature of the course.Games and exercises are used to awaken and encourage a sense of pleasure, an awareness of one’s immediate environment, and an honest response to internal impulses and external events. Individual creativity is explored with colour work and body work and the making and wearing of six masks. These masks mark out the playground for the clown (creative self), guiding the participants through their innocence and experience, extremities and normalcies, culminating in the “birth� of their individual clown.This workshop is an intense blast and furnishes the student with a malleable structure for continued creative exploration, with limitless applications.
