Have you ever wanted a ceramics tool that felt it was just for you? Look no more! Our LexArt Woodworking and Ceramics Guilds are coming together to offer a one session ceramics toolmaking workshop. Bring your ideas of wooden tools you would like to replicate, customized or even recreate to help elevate you claywork. Woodworking artist and teacher Palo Coleman and Ceramic artist and teacher Chin Lin will help students sketch and create templates to use on woodworking machinery to make one of a kind clay tools, a unique opportunity not to be missed!
About the instructors:
Palo Coleman grew up unfettered in Northern California where he spent a lot of time in the woods taught himself building skills and developed an interest in small-scale living. Now living with his wife and family in Cambridge, he continues to experiment in myriad woodworking techniques and is a tiny-house builder. Recent projects include a living playground in Waitsfield, Vermont’s elementary school; making a vertical garden system; constructing medieval games for the Fuller Craft Museum; and developing a portable studio with Japanese-wood siding.
Chin Lin started pottery in the early 1980's. In addition to teaching at LexArt, he has taught pottery classes at MIT Student Arts Association, Ceramics Studio at UC Berkeley as well as Sorenson Center for the Arts at Babson College over the last thirty years. Chin is a registered architect by training but his art work has been accepted in the American Craft Council's flagship show at Baltimore for both wholesale and retail shows. In the Ceramics Guild, he is known for making large forms.
