20/20 Perspectives in Canadian Ceramics

Saturday, March 21, 2020, 9am - 5pm
Shadbolt Centre for the Arts, Burnaby, BC, Canada

You’ve been waiting for it, and the 8th triennial Canadian Clay Symposium is now in sight! Participants attending this unique symposium will be in for a treat this year as the spotlight focuses on home grown Canadian ceramic artists, their work, techniques and how their Canadian identity and perspectives help shape their practice.

Experience a full day of ceramic delights with like-minded ceramic students, professionals and presenters. Hear about current trends and techniques and watch exceptional demos that will give insights into the presenters’ methods of hand-building, wheel throwing, sculpting, slip casting and atmospheric firing.

We are extremely proud of the talent and variety of ceramic approaches this Canadian focus has brought to this symposium. Learn from well respected artists, Carole Epp, Mary Fox, Jeremy Hatch, Steven Heinemann, Cathi Jefferson, Sarah Pike (Teapot photo above), Julie Moon and Linda Sikora.

The symposium is further enriched by a variety of pre- and post-symposium activities including expanded workshops with select presenters at various locations throughout the province, as well as ceramic-based exhibits around the Lower Mainland.

The mandate of the symposium is to provide a forum in which both professionals and students can gather and participate in an educational environment.
