This workshop intends to demystify working with soft slabs and paper patterns, and offers the essential components to creating unique slab built pots. Participants will learn the basics of slab building through the vein of a cream and sugar set. Demonstrations and hands-on work time will include pattern making and the construction of a handbuilt spout, lid, and flange.

There will be extensive discussion and demonstration on surface treatment using terra sigillata and underglazes. Participants will explore surface through test tiles that may be taken home and fired.  Small batches of tera sigillata will be available for purchase.

The format of this workshop is demonstration and hands-on work time.
