Visitor Center Artist Camp is an Artist Residency site in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, nestled between rural townships, abandoned mines, and the vast wilderness of the Ottawa National Forest. We hold one residency session each summer, hosting artists from around the country for two weeks of camping, exploring, learning, making, and sharing. Choose the Wild Clay Workshop with master ceramicist Amy Joy Hosterman of Stinky Cheese Ceramics to immerse yourself in the clay process, learning everything from harvesting clay on-site and mixing clay bodies by hand with local natural materials, to firing using electric kilns or experimental wood-barrel kilns, atmospheric propane kilns, and raku kilns, all while camping in the woods! All skill levels welcome!
