Every potter has a list of WHAT they want to make. HOW to make it, is often the question…

During this two and a half day, information-loaded, demo-workshop some 50+ making techniques will be demonstrated in answer to these ‘how-to’ questions; techniques 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.

“Throughout 50+ yrs. of making functional pots, I’ve collected hundreds of making techniques used to make specific pots, both wheel-thrown and hand-built;”
