Early classes will introduce students to basic hand-building techniques through demonstrations and small fun projects. The final classes will encourage students to use their new skills and imagination in creating their own functional or sculptural designs.

Gillian Maradyn-Jowsey is a ceramic artist living in Lunenburg, NS. She graduated from NSCAD University in 2017 with a BFA in ceramics, and has participated in a number of craft residencies since then. She creates functional and sculptural art grounded in her interest in craft and design for everyday living. Her process is fuelled by her delight for exploring materials and foraging for pattern, texture, and colour. These aesthetic influences trickle into all facets of her ceramic based practice. Through clay, she records mish-mash mark making through handbuilding by pinch, squeeze, and smoothing surfaces into forms that masquerade as both functional and sculptural objects.
