  1. Mark Arnold: Press Molds Meet the Wheel Workshop Register Here August 22 - 23, 2020: 10:00am – 4:30pm * EARLY BIRD REGISTRATION THROUGH 3/24/2020 * $345.00 Early Bird Nonmembers (includes lunches) $307.00 Early Bird Members (includes lunches) $385.00 Nonmembers (includes lunches) $347.00 Members (includes lunch) $285.00 Students (does not include lunches) In this workshop, we will create molds to be used in combination with wheel thrown and handbuilt forms made out of clay. By using press molds made of plaster, the wheel will then be used as a tool to assemble the pieces. We will explore a variety of utilitarian forms, from cups to vases, and discuss how to use carving, inlay and terra sigillata as surface decoration to make each piece unique to the maker. Workshop includes: 2 lunches 25 lbs of clay Plaster for molds Register Here About the Ranch Reitz Ranch is comprised of 14 acres on the beautiful Verde River in Clarkdale, Az. Nestled between Cottonwood, Jerome, Clarkdale, and Sedona, the ranch offers easy access from any spot here in the heart of Arizona wine country. With a remote feel, the ranch is still within a 20 minute drive of stores, restaurants, and nightspots. Built on the bones of a working ranch, the rich heritage of the ranch is apparent everywhere you look. A bunkhouse built over 100 years ago out of river rock, well pump handles, and literally hundreds of Don’s “porch pots” add to the experience. Whether you’re a beginning potter, advanced hobbyist, or working professional, then ranch can meet your needs. A well-equipped open studio, a wood fired kiln selection, and most importantly, a helpful community of wonderful people with the same interests will make you feel right at home.
  2. “The Clay Canvas” Sgraffito Workshop with Alissa Mittl Register Here May 24, 2020: 10:00am – 4:30pm * EARLY BIRD REGISTRATION THROUGH 3/24/2020 * $145.00 Early Bird Nonmembers (includes lunch) $115.00 Early Bird Members (includes lunch) $165.00 Nonmembers (includes lunch) $135.00 Members (includes lunch) In this one-day workshop, students will learn how clay can be treated as a two-dimensional canvas using sgraffito carving techniques. The term sgraffito originates from the Italian term graffiare meaning “to scratch.” It is a ceramic carving technique in which the colored, leather-hard surface is scratched through to reveal the clay body underneath. Using underglazes and carving techniques, Alissa will demonstrate how to build visually upon the ceramic surface to create depth and detailed imagery. An interest in drawing is encouraged, but no prior experience is necessary! All materials included.

Questions please email: admin@reitzranch.org The human figure has endless potential for narrative and emotional expression. Bodies are complex structures, but we will approach them with a simple building technique that anyone can master. During this workshop students will produce one full-figure sculpture with a solid building technique, which they will learn to hollow and re-assemble. Basic proportions and anatomy will be demonstrated, as will the use of a simple armature. Magda will demonstrate a solid construction technique in clay, which will allow for the greatest flexibility to change our poses as we build. Magda will also demonstrate hollowing the figures out, so that you can complete the hollowing process on your own. Small maquette studies will be created and used for inspiration. Scale of sculptures will be limited to 24” in one direction to provide enough time for detailing. Bring visual inspiration to class in the form of images/sketches. All skill levels are welcome. Workshop includes: 5 lunches provided 50 lbs of clay Register Online About the Ranch Reitz Ranch is comprised of 14 acres on the beautiful Verde River in Clarkdale, Az.
