BILL VAN GILDER

The functional pot: tips, tools & techniques

2/23 - 2/24/2019    (9 am-4:30 pm)

Bill van Gilder has been a professional potter for more than 45 years. At age 15, van Gilder began his clay work as a studio apprentice to the late Byron Temple. During the following years he apprenticed in Ireland and England, and received a degree from Harrow School of Art, London, U.K.. He then established and managed two large training pottery centers in Southern Africa (Lesotho & Swaziland) under the auspices of The World Bank. Bill returned to the U.S. in 1979 and established a studio and craft gallery atop South Mountain in Central Maryland, which he continues to operate today.

During this two day, information-loaded, demo-workshop some 50+ making techniques will be demonstrated which participants will want to use and adjust to fit their own future work. Short cuts, tips and tool-use at the wheel will be shared through demo after demo. Hand-building functional forms will be the focus during part of the demonstrations as requested, defining projects and techniques for hand-builders.

Group will break for a 1 hour lunch

Bill will present a 2-hour slide show on Friday evening preceding the workshop for those workshop registrants who wish to attend (at no additional cost).
