Thrown and Altered Pouring Vessels


Details Fee Breakdown:
Tuition: $650
Material Fee: $60

In this workshop, Taylor will demonstrate how she combines a variety of thrown, altered, and slab-built components to create pouring vessels. You will learn how to make bisque slump molds, dart wheel-thrown pieces, construct slab-built spouts using paper templates, how to make handles, and how to combine a variety of different parts into a functional pouring vessel. This workshop will focus mainly on construction techniques and pouring vessel design, with little emphasis on decoration. Participants should arrive comfortable with the basics of throwing cylinders, bowls, and trimming; this workshop is not suited for absolute beginners with no prior wheel throwing experience. No prior handbuilding experience necessary. Participants will leave the workshop with bisque-fired work.

*Workshops run from 9:00am to 5:00pm each day
