Art Teacher Workshop @ the Frist with Renowned Potter: Regis Brodie

I just love getting to attend beneficial workshops and this was one of them! We all got the chance to present our own work! We learned all about Regis Brodie, his influences and his body of work. It was a great experience and towards the end of the workshop we made a Japanese tea bowl for a traditional Japanese tea ceremony. My favorite piece of information from learning about Japanese tea ceremonies was that no one speaks before, during or after the ceremony and once you leave the ceremony you are leaving with the understanding that could be the last time you ever see each other again. That seemed really beautiful to me.
Anyway, here are some photos I took while attending the workshop. Enjoy!

Below you'll see Regis Brodie and Mr.E being silly with some samples of our tea bowls.
