Attendance: All session attendance encouraged
Prereq: Prior wheelthrowing experience
Fee: $100.00 for For technical instruction and materials

Nature is a wonderful source of inspiration. Both wheel thrown and hand-built vessels will be stretched, altered and manipulated in various ways with a nature theme. Exploring numerous surface techniques, we will transform your vessel into a functional form or sculptural object. Think large leaf platters, perhaps plump peach pitchers or over-sized sculptural pears. This workshop will involve both wheel work and handbuilding techniques.  Prior wheel skills are a prerequisite.
