PRE-COLUMBIAN CERAMICS INSTRUCTIONAL RESIDENCY
This unique production residency acknowledges the rich history of ceramics in Mexico by incorporating the knowledge of local building techniques, materials, and styles. The 5-week program includes 3 weeks of master instruction (27 hours total; 9 hours per week) to learn the stylistic possibilities of the pre-Columbian ceramic traditions of Mexico, followed by two weeks of continued, self-directed production. The program comprises hands-on instruction with diverse clay bodies from the region of Puebla and Tlaxaca. Instruction is in Spanish focusing in learning and experimentation with traditional techniques including burnishing, clay slips, pressing techniques, and traditional carvings. This residency is a comprehensive program to learn about the pre-Hispanic ceramic traditions of Mexico, focusing with a material experimentation, and including resources for a better understanding of the history and cultural context of ceramics in the region.
