Two John Britt Workshops in October 2011
Two Workshops at Claymakers
Workshop 1: Thrown, Altered, & Assembled
SATURDAY, OCTOBER 1, 2011
10:00 – 5:00
In this workshop, John Britt will present how he throws, alters, and assembles porcelain and stoneware into a variety of shapes–everything from jars to vases. He will discuss and demonstrate how he approaches the wheel as a forming tool. His demonstration will include closed forms and applications as well as a multitude of variations from tight forms to loose tea bowls. It will be an action-packed day designed for beginning to intermediate potters.
Workshop 2: Understanding Glazes
SUNDAY, OCTOBER 2, 2011
10:00 – 5:00
John Britt will give a general overview of ceramic glazes and glaze materials in this workshop. He will also discuss different firing methods and will cover cones, kilns, firing dynamics, and properties of various ceramic materials. The atmosphere will be fun and relaxed, with plenty of time for questions and answers and will include some more structured lecture periods as well. The content of the discussion will be directed by the participants’ interest. This class is appropriate for students of all levels.
Clay Club meets at artist studios and other locations throughout Western North Carolina, usually on the second Wednesday of the month. All potters and ceramic artists are welcome!
