Master Potter Workshops

Coming this fall ... ADAM FIELD, "Nature Tradition: Cultivating Inspirations in Clay"

Master Potter Workshop - Saturday, Sept. 20

Adam Field will demonstrate his methods for wheel throwing porcelain forms and carving intricate patterns on a variety of forms. From traditional techniques to innovative solutions for timeless problems, you will develop a new perspective on creating and decorating functional pottery. Learn skills for mapping out and carving geometric patterns and have a hands-on opportunity to try out Field's techniques and tools. Discussions about his Korean apprenticeship, studio practice, aesthetics, materials, ceramic history, and promotion and marketing strategy for the studio potter are certain to encourage individual discovery, growth, and development of fresh ideas. Gain the skill and confidence to create and decorate work in you own voice.

Open to all skill levels.

Co-sponsored by Walnut Creek Clay Arts Guild, Clay People, and Trax Gallery.
