THROWING WITH JOHN VELA
6/23 - 6/24 (10a-5p)
Come join us for a weekend workshop with John Vela of Sunset Canyon Pottery! John will cover a wide range of throwing tips and tricks for production pottery, centering around "the pointer". By setting a goal or "point" for throwing, individuals can improve their skills by increasing their confidence for throwing taller, wider and thinner. Thus, increasing speed, accuracy, and consistency; and ultimately allowing more time for details.
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). Firing services are not provided.
There will be one-hour lunch break. A refrigerator and microwave are available for anyone wanting to bring their own sack lunch. Or, folks may prefer to pop over to one of the nearby eateries for a quick bite (many within easy walking distance of the studio).
The studio will have coffee, filtered water (be sure to bring a bottle or lidded cup!) and snacks available, too.
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.
