July Hand Building & Throwing Summer School:  

July 13th - 17th,   9:00am - 6:00pm (1 hour lunch break) Instruction will be given from 9:30am - 4:30pm

$420(includes GST) per person.  Full payment due before June 30th

Throwing Class:  Jugs ( Pitchers) and Tea Pots

Although these are  basic items in the potters list of things to make, any potter with some throwing skill can make either item.  What I would like the student to aim to achieve are products of excellence.  The emphasis will be on design and quality of finish.  Pulled and extruded handles will be used to give either a contemporary or traditional look.

Hand Building Class:  Animals

Select photos or sketches of your favourite, quietest, funniest, scariest or most loveable animals, reptiles or monsters.  Within reason of complexity I will show you the best methods in hand building construction techniques to bring them to life.

Wednesday, July 15th,  - A short lecture and practical.  Basic understanding of glazes.  ( For those who are interested.)
