We will explore creating textured slabs of clay by hand and using a pressing technique to form them into trays, platters, plates, and even bowls. Day one will be dedicated to learning the process and creating one or two pieces that we will allow to firm up for day two.

Calendar Jul 20, 2024 at 10 am

Finished pieces will be dried and fired after the workshop ends, and be made available for pickup approximately 2 weeks after the workshop unless otherwise specified. During this two-day workshop we will be firing a wood-fired barrel Sagger Kiln multiple times, a technique of firing pottery that is similar to ancient pit-fired pottery, with some colorful flair to it. I will also demonstrate the traditional Horsehair Raku technique. Each participant will be provided one premade piece to decorate and fire. You may also bring your bisque-fired pieces to fire, as well as additional pre-made pieces will be available for purchase. All fired pieces will be completed and ready to take home at the end of each day. If time allows, there will be a throwing demonstration each day while we wait for the kilns to finish firing.
