This workshop will focus on creating and transforming traditional pottery forms through a variety of throwing and construction methods. Demonstrations will include throwing and stacking forms in multiple parts and assembling with a chuck system, creating off-axis forms, distorting thrown forms through cutting into forms and adding slabs, use of paper templates to design components like spouts and handles, and sgraffito and slip inlay decorating techniques.
Two day workshop, October 3 and 4 from 9am-4pm each day with a break for lunch. Artist talk on October 3rd after lunch.

First Sunday Pottery Class is a one time class that introduces students to the potter's wheel.
This casual three hour adult class will give you enough time to try out throwing clay and make a few small pieces.
During the class, the students will focus on making pieces and having fun. Our staff will fire and glaze your pieces once the pieces are fired. We will have a handful of glazes to choose from at the end of class. The pieces will be ready to pick up two weeks after the class.
The class is limited to 8 students to ensure that each student has enough time with the instructor.
Students are welcome to bring food and drink to enjoy during the class.
Contact email@example.com with any questions.
This allows one person entrance into KC Clay Guild's 2020 Raku Event.
