Slab-Built Pottery: From Flat To Form
August 30, 2018 – September 2, 2018
In this workshop students work with soft clay slabs, hand building construction techniques, templates and simple molds to create a variety of functional mid-range stoneware pottery forms. You might create mugs, tumblers, pouring pots, platters or one-of-a-kind presentation pots. The focus is on creating good forms using texture and various surface design techniques. Discussions will include glazes, but because of limited time, participants will bisque fire their pots and/or take home unfired work. Using minimal tools and equipment, this workshop is especially suitable for art educators and students new to hand building. For beginning to intermediate clay enthusiasts.
COURSE FEE: $340
