Paper Clay

Explore the benefits and beauty of making and working with paper clay.

Join Jackie as she leads you through this workshop to make seasonal ornaments of your own design. Paper clay is useful for ornaments as it weighs less and can be modeled as well as rolled out.

Week1, fabricate, molds and cutters will be available for you to implement your project. Week 2, decorate and glaze your ornaments. Pieces will be ready for pick up by the 21st of December.

Jackie Padich received a B.F.A. in Ceramics and a B.S. in Visual Arts Education from SUNY New Paltz before moving to Vermont in 2018. Jackie’s undergraduate studies were heavily focused on coil-built ceramic sculpture, culminating in a body of work deeply inspired by flora and fauna imagery in connection with the human experience. Jackie was afforded the opportunity to intern with Beth Cavener in Helena, Montana for a month in 2018.  There she learned methods of building solid on metal armatures and hollowing pieces to create increasingly complex and dynamic work. Jackie is also invested in a utilitarian pottery practice at Shackleton Thomas, where she apprentices with Miranda Thomas in Bridgewater, VT. In that practice she is cultivating her skills in wheel throwing, sgraffito decoration, and brushwork.
