Featured Workshop: Functional Pottery

Dessert Plates by Linda Christianson

January 4–6, learn to make functional, wheel-thrown pottery in this workshop with Linda Christianson. You can register for the workshop here, and read the full description below:

This three-day workshop focuses on functional wheel thrown pottery. Several approaches to handle, spout, and feet making are explored. Demonstrations, slides, and group discussion form the basis for an understanding of how to look critically at ceramic work, as well as expand the understanding of form, surface, volume, and intent. Linda demonstrates throwing and altering forms in the morning, followed by a break for lunch with a film. Participants are able to work hands-on in the afternoon, with one-on-one attention from Linda. Friday night begins at 7:00pm with a slide show and pot luck. Saturday and Sunday meet from 10:00am-4:00pm.
