CERAMICS WITH PASQUALE LIGOURI
Ceramics with Pasquale Ligouri, master craftsman of the Vietri ceramics tradition, and Vincenzo Consalvo. Students fabricated their own pieces.
Building Beauty Principle 8 is Making With Exquisite Care. This applies to small artifacts, to buildings, to settlements. Early in the program, we are learning the process of making in small experiments.
CHRIS ANDREWS CARPET DESIGN WORKSHOP
Work on real projects begins, with Chris Andrews leading a workshop on carpet design. Using ancient carpets designs for inspiration, students produce design work that will be used to make actual carpets as they learn about the intrinsic connection between color and geometry. This is one of a series of laboratories that guide students in the assessment of beauty and the process that generates it.
GIARDINI DELLA MINERVA IN SALERNO
A class with Luciano Mauro, Director of the Giardini. Established in the 11th century, the Giardini played a pivotal role in the development of the city of Salerno. We are also working toward a second visit to the Giardini to be held in late February 2018, with an eye to the second semester project starting two weeks later, and the cultivation class that goes with it.
