Service Description

Visiting Artist Instructor: DH McNabb The intent of this workshop is to hone your (a)esthetic and your knowledge of material transformation. How one can make is as important as why. Here we will look at your taste and value that you have come to form through your nature and nurture. By way of discussions and on the fly critiques we will hone this ‘(a)esthetic’ sense and find what in a design, object or artwork is pleasing. Making beauty not just something in the eye of the beholder. You have a voice let us work together to develop it, not just in your physical objects but also the way you execute them. This will be done by running the gambit from simple shapes to complex forms and techniques that allow the maker to think differently. Trips to both SF MOMA and the Museum of Craft and Design will inspire & be used as moments for quick projects. The approach and the execution of ideas whether deemed – utilitarian/sculptural/decorative object/design/conceptual – can all have a place in your practice. We will understand/appreciate this through (a)esthetic(s). The course will take place over 5 days. Each day will have morning demos followed by instructor-guided student practice sessions until 3:30 pm, with a small break for lunch. Wednesday and Thursday sessions will end early for museum trips, with extended work time on Friday.
