Variations on the Potter's Wheel Workshop
70.00

April 28, 10AM-1PM

This workshop will consist of both demonstration, as well as, hands on participation by attendees. I will demonstrate a variety of thrown and altered pottery techniques as well as the basic cylinders, bowls and plates. The class will focus on functional pottery beginning with a very short presentation on the history of studio pottery in the United States and the influence of the Japanese mingei movement.

Students will spend time trying out the potter’s wheel getting down and dirty with clay. I will help students individually as they experience this amazing material. Students at all levels of experience are welcome.  Attendees will walk away with some background history, practical information and some hands-on experience and hopefully a desire to learn more!

Introduction to the Basic Clay Forming Techniques
65.00

April 28, 2-5PM 

A one-time workshop designed to introduce basic techniques of forming vessel forms on the potter’s wheel and beyond. The main goal of this workshop is to introduce students to the abundance of ways clay could be shaped into timeless vessel forms humans have been using for centuries i.e. bowls, tumblers, mugs. Extensive demonstrations of throwing these forms on the potter's wheel will be held along with pinching, coiling and decorating work with slips. Students will choose the forming technique and create the forms they enjoy. Completed forms will be fired for students to keep. No previous experience of working with clay is necessary. Students will walk away with the renewed appreciation for the beauty of handmade vessels.
