You can take a workshop anywhere, but it won’t be as gorgeous as Tahoe! We’re within walking distance of the north shore of beautiful Lake Tahoe. Come join us this summer for an intensive study of art in a variety of mediums. Tap into your creativity at the lake!
Eric Stearns creates thrown and pierced forms that are raku fired in an electric kiln with minimal smoke escaping during the reduction. This course will take you step-by-step through his design and making process, including pattern creation and execution, piercing and finishing the clay, bisque firing and then applying tape resist and raku glazes to enhance and compliment the original design.

In this two-day workshop, participants will be guided by the artist to throw selected signature forms including plates, bowls and double-walled vessels. Explore his process for creating intricate pierced designs on the surface of your work. Conclude the workshop with Stearns demonstrating a raku firing of his work.
