Pottery on the Wheel
July 17, 2017 @ 6:00 am - 9:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 6:00am on Monday, repeating until July 31, 2017
This class, for students with previous experience throwing pots on the wheel, will concentrate on developing some advanced skills. Each week’s class period will concentrate on specific skills such as throwing consistent shapes, trimming a foot, forming and attaching handles, lid making, and more. There will be demonstrations and help with each skill. Open studio is included with this class to provide more practice time. In-class videos will also be used to broaden our understanding of other potters’ techniques and approaches to their craft. We will discuss what makes a good pot. 25# of clay, glazes, firing, and open studio are included. Extra clay will be available for purchase.
John Huston will be Potter-in-Residence all summer at Thoreson Farm. John has been a potter for more than 35 years and has lived and worked in Ohio, Indiana, and Japan. He works in his home studio overlooking Sanford Lake in Benzie County. John and his wife Amy Stevens own and operate Glen Lake Artists Gallery in Glen Arbor.
Open Studio included.
