This workshop is so popular, we're running it twice!  

October 20 and November 3, 12:30 - 4:30 pm

Amanda Gentry shares the tools and techniques behind her clay work presented in Expanding on view until November 24, 2013. Practical demos and hands-on instruction will explore both functional and non-functional work. This workshop is not recommended for first-time clay students.

Amanda Gentry is a Chicago-based artist better known for her functional clayware, before focusing on the non-functional work highlighted in this exhibition three years ago. Gentry’s work has been shown at the Chicago Art Department, Kent State University and Manchester University, where she also taught at the visiting artist workshop. In 2012 she was an artist-in-residency at the Pyrenean Pottery Workshop in Prats-de-Mollo-la-Preste, France. She has also participated in clay programs at Anderson Ranch Art Center (Colorado), Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts (Tennessee), and La Meridiana International School of Ceramics in Tuscany (Italy). Gentry received a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Boston University and was a Hyde Park Art Center student from 2009-2011.
