VIRTUAL: Using Paper Patterns in Clay

Together with flat slabs of clay, paper patterns can allow you to create inventive hand built forms and consistent repeatable forms. Learn to use paper to create patterns as a hand building technique in clay. Rhonda will help students to look at a current object, interpret it as a paper pattern, and learn how to use a sketch to create a paper pattern. Have your own supplies ready and try along with Rhonda as she demonstrates.
