Two Day Workshop with Gay Smith

Canisters by Gay SmithAltering on the Wheel with Soft Clay
May 13 -14, 2017
$195+HST (for members; $215+HST)

Exciting possibilities are presented in this workshop on altering the forms and surfaces of freshly thrown pots. The immediacy of working with soft clay gives a lively spontaneity to the finished pieces. Starting with simple round pots, the workshop will cover easily utilized methods of squaring, ovalling, fluting and faceting. We’ll take lidded forms out of the round too.

Thoughtful attention to attachments, handles, and feet, and how to trim an oval and finishing touches will be demonstrated and discussed. Emphasis will be on creating lively functional ware and we’ll stretch that
notion, too. To sign up please contact Ann Randerad, annranderaad(Replace this parenthesis with the @ sign) or 519-938-2092.
