Bigger Pots, Made Easy Workshop With Gabriel Kline & Anja Bartels
Do you want to increase the scale of your work, but feel intimidated
by large pieces of clay? Have you ever stood in front of a giant pot,
and wondered just how it was made?
Join Anja and Gabriel as they
demystify the techniques used to produce large-scale pottery on the
potter's wheel. Demos will include a 50 lb bowl, a 40" diameter platter,
team throwing, and sectional building techniques that allow the potter
to build pots head high, or taller!
These techniques are simple,
fun, and easy to learn. You'll be amazed at the pieces you create. In
addition to the demos, the week will include discussions on glazing and
firing techniques, as well as plenty of studio time to practice with
individual help from the instructors.
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! Look for details about the meetings here on the blog or contact Amy Waller at firstname.lastname@example.org for more info.
