To begin, Jennifer will demonstrate the technique of “dry throwing”, using two metal ribs to create the shape of the piece, after the basic cylinder has been thrown. Next, she will show how altering and folding that form by hand can add movement and strength. Then you will see carving techniques on the porcelain when it is leather hard. Next she will show sanding techniques once the piece is bone dry. The last hour of each day can be devoted to looking at images or actual pieces of each participant’s work, and discussing ways that the these techniques can be individually utilized.

The workshop will be limited to 20 participants, on a first come, first served basis with a preference given to our members.
