June 24 - 28
Join Eric Van Eimeren for this hands-on workshop exploring techniques and thought processes related to making functional pottery. Participants will have ample time to improve their wheel throwing skills, while reviewing topics like composition, volume, balance, weight, lips, edges, handles, and positive versus negative space. Students will also be encouraged to question traditional notions of what pottery is "supposed" to look like, and will return home with a renewed sense of playfulness. Some wheel throwing experience is recommended.
Space is limited to 10 students.
