AN EVENING WITH
TRUDY GOLLEY: RECENT TRAVELS IN CHINA
In 2005 Trudy Golley was invited to Shanghai, China to create a two-meter tall bronze statue for placement in a public park there. That experience started an ongoing relationship with porcelain, The Pottery Workshop‘s Experimental Factory in Jingdezhen, and China in general. Now looking forward to her sixth artist residency and coleading a two-week ceramics study tour to China in the spring of 2013, Trudy will present an evening of images and stories about the innovative ceramics research that she has been pursuing there.
All are welcome to this free event.
Appetizers and refreshments will be served.

THE RED DEER POTTERY CLUB PRESENTS
FROM START TO FINISH: FORM AND SURFACE
The Red Deer Pottery Club invites you to attend a
one-day workshop with ceramic artist, Trudy Golley
on Saturday, May 5th from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
Refreshments from 9:30 a.m. Lunch will be provided.
In this demonstration workshop Trudy will focus on methods for making and using paper clay, as well as strategies that encourage a personalized approach to press-molding and handbuilding. Trudy will also cover decorating and glazing techniques that start at the raw and leatherhard stages and progress right through to the bisque and glaze firing. The aim is to unlock the potential of glazes and glazing methods to achieve rich surfaces that enhance and support the ceramic object’s form.
