TWO-DAY WORKSHOP WITH
HEATHER OSSANDON: DESIGNING FOR THE TABLE
From "farm to table" to "kiln to table"... Throughout this informative and hands-on workshop, Ossandon demonstrates throwing functional forms on the wheel including cups, bowls, plates, pitchers, lidded forms, vases, and of course, a teapot or two. Further demonstrations will go step by step in creating unique ceramic forms for specific foods and drinks. The focus will be on principles of design, form and function, as well as showing technical tricks on the wheel. Heather will discuss her approach to glazing in both electric and wood environments.
All skill levels. Seats are limited.
