Pouring Pots: Wheel-Throwing
November 3, 2019 – November 9, 2019
Suze Lindsay and Margaret Bohls
In this workshop students create pots that pour. You will work on wheel and tabletop exploring techniques for making pots that can hold and deliver liquid, forming spouts, crafting comfortable handles, and producing lids that fit. Participants will create interesting forms built from multiple parts— either made on the wheel or hand-built. The class will share demonstrations and projects with handbuilding techniques taught by Margaret Bohls. They include drawing and writing exercises, sharing images of historical and contemporary sources, and discovering new approaches to surface enhancement. Bisque fire only. Open to intermediate level only.
COURSE FEE: $600
