Instructor: Dan Finnegan
August 20 - 24
Monday - Friday
9am - 1pm
In this workshop we will focus on a different aspect of pottery making each day. Our aim will be to improve skills and make more expressive work while exploring the various steps in making useful pots. Each day we will explore a new idea while building on the previous day’s work. Wheel throwing, handles and attachments, surface decoration, altering and glazing will all be addressed. All skill levels are welcome but be prepared to be challenged!
