Margaret's Upcoming Workshops
Open to All
Students of any skill and knowledge level.
Jul 17 - 21, 2023
During this workshop, students work in a unique partnership with Suze Lindsay's throwing class as a combined group. The workshop includes demonstrations, exercises, and projects to achieve design-oriented results. Working on tabletop and wheel, students explore the various techniques for making pottery, including handbuilding using soft and stiff slabs and coil building. Students may also work using the potter’s wheel to combine thrown and handbuilt elements. Images of historical and contemporary pots will inspire purpose and intention. Demonstrations and discussions include the use of texture and slip application techniques, and how to marry form and surface. Students should come with a form or idea to develop.
