THROWING LARGE FORMS WITH DON BRIMBERRY

8/18 - 8/19     (1-6p)

 

Go big! Come learn how to throw large forms with Don Brimberry! With over 40 years of experience, Don can show you all the tricks in the book to achieve larger or taller forms.

One 25# bag of clay is included with the registration fee.  If students desire additional clay for use during the workshop, reclaimed clay will be available for purchase ($16 for 20# bag).  The studio will bisque fire one piece of student’s choice (provided it fits in the kiln!).

This is an afternoon workshop on both days, so there will be no lunch break. The studio will have filtered water (be sure to bring a bottle or lidded cup!) and snacks available.

CANED HANDLES WITH DEB DIXON

8/24 (6:30 - 9p)

Learn how to add a caned handle to a pot to enhance the beauty of it and bring added interest by incorporating a different material into your clay work!

Students will learn how to create a basic caned handle for finished glazed pots that they will bring to the workshop. Caning materials sufficient for handles on 2 medium size pots with 2 attachment areas will be provided.  A suitably sized pot is a wine chiller/caddy or a bowl about 8-9 inches in diameter. The area for attaching the caned handle may be additional lugs added to the pot (such as for a teapot) or hole that has been punched through the pot .  Hole punches 1/2 inch or 7/8 inch are recommended.  Smaller than 1/2 inch will be difficult to work with. A basic cylinder-style pot will be available for students who wish to take the workshop but do not have a finished pot to bring with them.

General tips and information about working with the reed materials will also be covered.
