The Art of Pottery
An excellent team-building workshop
Team Building and Corporate Events
Feel the smooth, soft clay and be transported back to your childhood! With one-on-one instruction from a nationally recognized studio potter, whose work has been featured in the New York Times, you will learn (once again) three different pottery techniques; pinch pots, coil and animal making.
The workshop begins with a tour of the studio and an introduction to the processes and techniques involved in the different types of pottery making. A demonstration of throwing on the potters’ wheel follows, along with demonstrations of several hand building methods. Attendees are then set loose in the studio to make their piece of art incorporating the techniques they have learned using the same tools and materials the potter uses. Create a one-of-a-kind piece of art that is truly your own. Textured coil pots, fantastic animals and handled baskets are just a few of the treasures that can be made. Participants are also encouraged to try their hand on the potters’ wheel.
Completed pieces must be left to fully dry before they are fired. Once dried and fired they will be shipped by the potter to the participants’ home.
