Rough And Refined: A Guide To Finding Form

October 18, 2020 – October 24, 2020

Bill Wilkey

During this workshop students will focus on creations being made both on and off the wheel. Demonstrations will include sketching, designing molds for handbuilding tableware and throwing. Participants will use reductive processes to refine forms while adding slips and glaze that accentuate the soda firing process. Bring to class your enthusiasm and love of making pottery. Open to all skill levels.
