CLAY SUMMER SESSION 1
MAY 28–JUNE 2, 2023
Handbuilt Pottery: From Flat to Form
Using soft clay slabs and several different handbuilding techniques, students will create a variety of functional pottery forms, including mugs, tumblers, pouring pots, vases, and platters. Students will also create their own texture stamps and rollers for making patterns and designs on their pots. We’ll emphasize craftsmanship and creating good forms. Although we’ll discuss glazes and their applications, we’ll bisque-fire only and spend more time on the making. This workshop is especially designed for students new to handbuilding and teachers who want to expand their pottery making skills. Beginning level. Lower clay studio.
