Program Description

Join artist Leah Wolff for a series of afternoon-long, hands-on ceramics workshops focused on the use of custom-made tools in studio practice.

For any artist, acquiring a new tool can be an amazing source of inspiration that allows previously unconsidered ideas to surface. By definition, a tool facilitates a task, and all artists rely on tools to help them perform the operations necessary to create work. But do artists really benefit from having a third party make tools for them?  While purchasing a new tool can be a wonderful thing, when artists create tools for themselves, alternative choices emerge both in their work and everyday lives.
