Lidded Pewter Spice Jar

In this four-day online workshop, students will make a small, lidded pewter container. This will be made through simple forming and fabrication techniques in 14-gauge sheet pewter. Daily, prerecorded demonstrations will illustrate forming methods, fabrication using soldering and welding, simple mold construction using cuttlefish, melting and casting, surface treatments and texturing methods, and finishing techniques. The workshop will also include live group meetings, individual feedback, and additional demonstrations as needed—all conducted using Zoom. All skill levels welcome.

Platters and Trays from Slabs and Coils

In this three-day online workshop we’ll handbuild platters, trays, and other serving dishes using clay slabs and coils. We’ll cover basic handbuilding techniques and then build on those basics by adding height plus handles and feet. We’ll carefully consider the specific functionality and the visual balance of each pot. Students should be able to make these pots using the space of a work table and minimal tools. Along with daily, prerecorded demonstrations, the workshop will include live group meetings, individual instruction and feedback, and additional demonstrations as needed—all conducted using Zoom. All skill levels welcome.

Fee: $500 (3 days). Participants will receive a materials list ahead of time and will be able to watch the demonstrations as many times as they like until May 13, 2021.
