description
Hitomi and Takuro learned pottery making as professional studio potters in Shigaraki, one of the oldest and largest pottery villages in Japan. Now based in Seagrove, North Carolina, the Shibatas join the Art League to lead a ceramics workshop. Students learn the traditional Japanese pottery methods of throwing, coil building, and slab building. Demonstrations and hands-on time are both integral to the weekend. Friday evening Hitomi and Takuro present a slide lecture on their experiences in Shigaraki and Seagrove, inspirations and influences, wild clays in North Carolina and their wood firing methods. Non-workshop attendees may join in. Just bring a dish to share and pay $5.00 at the door.
