Mastering Forms for Crisp, Clean Pots (Scandinavian Heritage Wk)
Date: Sunday, Mar 18 - Saturday, Mar 24, 2018
Subject: Clay Instructor: Chris Jones
Spend the week learning how to create good functional pottery on the wheel, even if you've never "thrown" before! We will design and complete a variety of forms with an emphasis on simple, elegant style. Work will be glazed and fired in electric kilns, and you will depart with a finished piece or several. This class is ideal for beginners (moderate hand strength advised), but those with some experience are also welcome.
**As of Februrary 1, 2018 there are 5 people signed up. There is room for 11. Come join in the fun. While this class is great for beginners, I can also work with more advanced potters too.
