This 2 day workshop provides demonstration, guided hands-on-experience and a wealth of knowledge. Jonathan Stein will cover start to finish. He will answer glaze and firing questions, and so much more!
Day 1: This is a ½ day workshop in small group. You’ll learn the intricacies of the potter’s wheel to provide you with greater confidence and control when throwing. The creation of larger and more complex forms will be discussed, as well the technical challenges associated with drying and firing work. Students will learn through a variety of demonstrations and guided hands-on to experience new skills.
Day 2: Jonathan will show you how he creates large vessels to be used in combination with wheel-thrown and hand-built forms made from clay. Learn handles and textures to allow hand builders and wheel throwing to create better form for function or embellishment. Demonstrations will provide students a variety of techniques and options.
