Studio Arts Boulder is a non-profit art education organization that provides high-quality ceramics programs at the Boulder Pottery Lab and partners with other studio arts organizations for programs in other mediums. The “studio arts” are those art forms which require a substantial investment in equipment and facilities that is beyond the means of most individuals, such as ceramics, printmaking, woodworking, metal, glass, and fiber.


Celebration of Jomon

Studio Arts Boulder is hosting master potters from Japan - Ifurai, Genya Murakami, and Ryujiro Oyabu - for a month-long Celebration of Jomon. "Jomon" means "cord pattern" and comes from the style of decoration on pottery made during this ancient era. This special month-long visit in Boulder includes a two-day, hands-on workshop taught by Ifurai & Genya at the Boulder Pottery Lab, followed by a traditional Noyaki open-pit firing of workshop pieces. In addition, Studio Arts Boulder is organizing community events to provide information about Jomon history, tradition, and demonstrations of this unique ceramics method.

Friday Night Art SEries


Two-Part Woodcut Prints

In this two-part beginner workshop, Instructor Renate Mairie will guide students through the printmaking process of woodcut engraving.  Students will learn to use a small number of specialized gouges and chisels to create varying line and shape qualities from a personal image that is transferred to wood.  At the end of the second session, students will walk away with multiple one color copies of relief carving and the knowledge for creating and printing wood engravings at home.  

Date: Friday, March 8 and 15 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Cost: $75 for two evenings of print
