  • Mars Hill University Mars Hill, North Carolina (map)

This workshop intends to demystify working with soft slabs and offers the essential components to creating unique slab built pots. Students will be introduced to the techniques of working with earthenware clay slabs and paper patterns. They will begin with simple functional forms and expand to include components such as lids, feet, and spouts.  There will be discussion and work time allotted towards surface treatment using terra sigillata and underglazes.

 This workshop emphasizes one-on-one interaction in a supportive, positive environment where experimentation is encouraged and individual development nurtured. This workshop is designed to accommodate all clay enthusiasts from beginner to advanced.
