The Art of Pottery: Finding Your Own Voice

July 13th – 17th, 2020

Workshop Description

What are the elements that contribute to the character of a pot? How do you develop them to make them your own? This is a workshop for developing your pottery as an expressive art form. The class will include instruction of different ways for making pots, using throwing and altering techniques. Students will bring work to fire during the workshop. Ideas and information for surface treatments and firing techniques will be discussed and shared. Presentations of the artist’s work and contemporary ceramics will compliment this hands-on experience.
