    2 DAY WORKSHOPS DETAILS
    Cost:
    $295 Includes all materials and firings (bisque and glaze)
    $200 downpayment required for registration to hold your place. $100 non-refundable due to small class size and cost of pre-ordering materials.
    These classes are for absolute beginners through advanced. I have many students who take weekend workshops many times, building their skills from absolute beginners to advanced ceramics artists, developing their own style and artistic language over time. I work with experienced students to build skills and visual style based on one-on-one conversations about what people want to work on.
    We cover many different ways of working with clay during these fun-filled, information-packed two-day workshops.
    Hand building
    Hand building, as I have found for myself, can be even more creative than throwing. I introduce many hand building skills.
    I will have slabs of clay ready for you to work with. I will show you quick and easy ways of making mugs to teapots.
    Wheel work: Basic wheel skills
    If you have never been on the wheel before I will get you throwing, working hands-on (literally) with you to throw pots. If you have been on the wheel before, I will watch you throw and trouble shoot everything from your ergonomics to your pace. I am happy to demo and teach anything you wish.
    Surface decoration
    We will be imprinting clay, carving and painting. I will give lots of creative decorating and glazing demos. I have many coloured slips and underglazes to finish your forms with, and will instruct on how to use them.
    We have a simple potluck luncheon each day, with each student providing something light to share. *Please let me know if you have any dietary needs*

    I accept E-Transfer and credit cards.
