For Adults + Teens  (catered lunch included)


Open to “advanced beginners” and above, this one-day class will teach you to loosen up and widen your options for adding texture and organic movement to your pots. Working with various wood blocks and a torch (or heat gun), you will emboss the walls of your pots and learn to alter the form while the pot is still freshly thrown. The element of heat brings stability and structure to a freshly thrown pot, allowing you to experiment and push your forms in a manner not possible with a soft clay wall. You will learn to work with the surface in its semi-leather hard state, discovering new ways to think about curves, overhangs, and “gravity fooling” options. You will leave with new ideas and a few tricks, expanding your toolbox of pottery-making approaches.  


Scholarships and sliding-scale tuition rates are available. The workshop schedule will include a morning artist talk and demo, a 30-minute catered lunch, and afternoon hands-on creating and experimenting time. A 25-pound bag of clay and a catered lunch will be provided to all participants. 


What is a sliding scale?
