Participants with modest throwing abilities will find themselves
creating 3-4 ft. tall pots with relative ease.
Emphasis on using leverage and body bracing will greatly increase
the abilities of a potter to control and raise clay into large forms.
Even on very large pots the potter will rarely be raising more than 8 pounds
of clay at a time.
This workshop should be considered a learning experience.
Participants will not be taking home large fired pots, but will leave with
the ability and confidence to create these pieces in their own studios.
$ 420 per person includes all meals.
* A materials fee (clay cost) will be charged, only
to those who wish to take home
their "leather hard" giant pots.
