Visiting Artist Workshop with Darcy Badiali

10:00am to 4:00pm

Location: 

Ceramics Program, 224 Western Avenue, Allston, MA 02134

Presented by: Ceramics Program - Office for the Arts at Harvard Darcy Badiali

Join us for a one-day workshop and demonstration by California-based artist Darcy Badiali while in Boston exhibiting with Lacoste Gallery in Concord, MA. Badiali will demonstrate his process for throwing large-scale forms on the wheel and provide a slide lecture on his work. Badiali makes works that are inspired by nature such as evident in his large white vessels which resemble egg shells. He is inspired by his environment but also intertwined with the materials at hand and at the wheel. There will be a pot-luck lunch during the workshop.

This event is free to registered Ceramics Program students, Harvard Undergraduate and Graduate students. For all others, $25.00 registration fee. To register, email Kathy King, Director of Education at kking@fas.harvard.edu or fill in the form here and send in (even if you don't need to pay so that we can hold your spot!)
