WEEKLONG WORKSHOP:       Pot Your Heart Out! July 4th-9th

WEEKLONG WORKSHOP: Pot Your Heart Out! July 4th-9th


Join us July 4-9th for a wheel focussed session at Blackbird Pottery. Aim to develop and hone skills at the Potter's Wheel with a focus on consistency, repetition and refining form. Explore surface decoration techniques from green to bisque stages. This workshop is suitable for a range of beginners and those with some experience, who want concentrated studio time in a relaxed and supportive studio space. Spaces are limited. 


Please note:

This is a 5.5 day workshop. Classes run 10-4 daily except on the last day! This extra 1/2 day is for collecting our work after the kiln has cooled. We'll unload, review results, discuss & wrap up. Timing on Saturday will be determined the week of. The good news is, you'll get to sleep in and enjoy a leisurely breakfast before convening at the studio. Some students may prefer to pick up at another time, arrangements should be made in advance.
