Supply list for Hawaii workshops

Supply list for Aha Hana lima workshops:

Our plan is to have people work in teams so if you’re flying not to worry on bringing the drill w/ glaze attachment, nor the 5 gallon buckets. Each team will need this so we can match you up with someone who has this…..

besides normal clay tools:
Scissors- sturdy
2-5 gallon buckets with lids
A 5 gallon bucket lid cut with a slit in it so that the clay does not slop out ( we can cut these the first day
Electric drill with  clay/glaze mixer bit on end (18” long) and extension cord (needs to be able to run for 30+ minutes or more so should be electric…)if not bring extra batteries.
A good colander that has small openings that will fit over 5 gallon buckets. (Glaze sieves work too).
2 pint size containers with lids
Rolling pin
Old paint brushes
Apron is a must
Your own towel/rag
1-2 squirt bottles with small openings- like ketchup/mustard or hair dying bottles
Notebook

Also , bring in some cotton twine of sorts, and anything you might want to dip:
lace, pine cones, leaves, etc…(not too big)

Current show at Harvey Meadows Gallery in Aspen through March 9th

Upcoming Paperclay Workshops in Hawaii, March, 2015

Aha Hana Lima: “a gathering of crafts”

I will be giving two weekend workshops and lectures through the arts organization, Hawaii Craftsmen, a 48 year old non-profit organization of artists-members in Hawaii:

  • 1st on Oahu, Thursday,   March 19- Sunday, March 22nd
  • 2nd on Kauai, Thursday, March 26- Sunday, March 29th

These are open to the public, so if you need an excuse to come to Hawaii this spring to take a workshop, here’s your chance!

” Every spring we bring mainland artists to Hawaii for a series of  workshops in various media and always with two clay workshops, one on Oahu island and a second on a neighbor island (Kauai).   We call this program Aha Hana Lima, which in Hawaiian means “a gathering of crafts”.

Playing with Your Expectations

Western Slope Avant Garde Past and Present Plus One
September 3 – 26, 2014
Opening reception: Friday, September 5, 7-9pm
Introductions 6:30pm
Exhibit sponsored by Chuck and Robbie Breaux

Supplemental lecture by Sara Ransford,
Saturday, September 6, at 5:30pm

Playing with Your Expectations highlights the work of artists who have challenged the norms of material use, assigned value or commodity, expendability, subject matter and content. The Art Center hopes to create critical dialogue with every curated exhibit, but this exhibit brings some of our most experimental artists to the forefront.

The Western Slope and Moab are lucky to have had all these creatives with us no matter how brief a moment in time. They have been and continue to be some of the bravest people if not the most generous in spirit our community has come to know

Western Slope artists selected are: Jamie Bardsley, Grand Junction; Verona Burkhardt, Grand Junction; John Cohorst, Carbondale; Paul Collins, Snowmass (now Nashville, TN); Gary Haushulz, Palisade; Karly Koster, Grand Junction (currently Austin, TX); Lancer Livermont, Grand Junction; Charmaine Locke, Carbondale; Sara Ransford, Aspen/Loma; Paul Soldner, Snowmass, James Surls, Carbondale, and Bryan Wade, Grand Junction.

Close neighbor, Adele Alsop, from Moab, is also included because. Her work is so utterly breath-taking. Proximity to quality of work make a natural fit for this exhibit.
