Clay Summer Session 3
June 20 – July 1, 2021
This workshop will focus on skill building, curiosity, and the aesthetic development of each student’s individual interests. Through daily demonstrations, discussions, fun exercises, and personalized attention, students will create well-crafted, thoughtful pottery. We’ll cover throwing and altering, slab making, slip and glaze application, and loading and firing kilns. We’ll use high-temperature clay and fire in Penland’s wood and salt/soda kilns. In an atmosphere of fun and hard work, the goal will be for you to experience personal growth through making pots. Both wheelthrowers and handbuilders welcome. All levels. Upper clay studio.
