Pottery Wheel Session with Mark Epstein: working in our throwing studio throwing large vessels, multi lidded sets, teapots and cups. All materials included but please bring personal calipers for measuring.
Sculpting Without Anesthesia with Kris Cummings: working inside our charming art house making human, animal, and floral figures using your imagination working with coils, simple tools and press molds. Come with a sketch book or idea of something you want to make.
Alternative Firing with Randy Brodnax: working both inside and outside the classroom (bring warm clothing and closed toed shoes) with specialty firings with amazing and beautiful results - and Randy has promised to create a barrel fire with downdrafts and sawdust plus his chloride fuming, too. Randy recommends firing your pieces to cone 08 for optimal success. Bisqued pottery is available for purchase, too.
*Each day the studio will serve lunch and provide the main course and students bring side dishes to share (salads, snacks and more) - fun!
Bring tools, clay is provided. Bring up to 6 pieces of bisque - fired to cone 08 - for Randy's raku and saggar fire, items available for sale, too. This is a community event where we will learn together, play together and eat lunch together - studio will provide main course and students bring snacks and side dishes to share. Bring boxes, packing material to transport finished pieces home. Studio will not fire.
