Randy Johnston Workshop

  • Midwest Clay Guild 1601 Payne Street Evanston, IL, 60201 United States (map)

We are excited to announce a Randy Johnston workshop hosted at the Midwest Clay Guild.

This workshop is a rare opportunity to spend time with renowned ceramic artist, Randy Johnston. In this demo-only workshop, Randy will be making traditional pottery with a focus on ideas involved in making functional ware. He’ll cover use of the wheel and the construction of forms by altering pieces, using slabs and paper patterns. There will be lots of discussion about his work and its relationship to contemporary ceramics. Randy will lecture about historical and contemporary ceramic work, show personal images of his time in Japan and photos of his and his wife Jan’s studio and kilns.
