Well-known pottery artist to teach at Fanshawe’s Adult Summer School of the Arts
This summer will feature an exciting lineup of instructors and courses at Fanshawe’s Adult Summer School of the Arts, including Wayne Cardinalli, a talented Canadian pottery artist.
Cardinalli will be teaching a pottery workshop on June 23 and 24 at Hutton House and will include demonstrations on large scale throwing, hand building and surface decoration.
Cardinalli has been a pottery maker for more than 40 years and has conducted over 150 workshops, lectures, demonstrations and critiques.
He recently entered and had two pieces accepted in Big Fish, Small Pot V, the Fifth International Small Teapot Competition. The entries were juried by Guahgzhen Zhow, a ceramics master from China. Cardinalli’s entry called Fools Gold Tea was awarded an honorable mention and is featured in an exhibition at the American Museum of Ceramic Art in California.
"We are thrilled to have Wayne here with us this summer," says Maureen Korhonen, program consultant in Continuing Education. "The Adult Summer School of the Arts will offer learners a wide range of courses and workshops to hone their skills."
The second annual Adult Summer School of the Arts also offers programming in photography, movement and dance, drawing, painting, culinary, printmaking, music and voice, and theatre performance. The School will also feature new courses and workshops in textiles and communications and writing.
"Published local novelist Barbara Haworth-Attard will be teaching a writer’s workshop and we’re also pleased to have Julie O’Dea teaching a textiles course on caning, the traditional art of restoring hand-woven seats," Korhonen says. "All of our instructors are passionate about their craft and will inspire their students in a creative environment."
