Class Description

In this 2 day workshop, come make a unique self-supporting slab totem with Lynn Wood, aka the pottery texture queen. These totems look great in gardens large or small. Everyone will also be invited to make a section or two as a part of our larger community Totem Building Project led by Roger Wiere.

Each totem will have a number of individual textured sections which will make a wonderful addition to any garden!

Lynn will guide everyone as to how to finish the totem sections with under glazes and glaze highlights. The glazes and under glazes will be available for students to complete their projects after they have been bisque fired.

About the Instructor

Lynn Wood

Instructor / Artist

Lynn Wood is THE Pottery Texture Queen. She is inspired by textures found in nature, architecture, and textiles and brings this joy into her work through pattern, texture, and color.  Lynn has developed her own patterned texture mats that can be used on hand-built and thrown pottery in a variety of ways and they are available for sale at Sonoma Community Center.  Lynn lives in Santa Rosa, shows and teaches nationally, and, of course teaches at Sonoma Ceramics.

Sliding Scale Guidance

When you register for a class, you’ll be offered three price tiers. The middle tier comes closest to what our registration fees used to be, and covers about 50% of the full cost of your participation in the class – with the other 50% covered by community donations. The first tier creates accessibility for people with limited income, while the third tier covers the full cost of participation – so that we can use community donations to support other people’s registration costs. When you choose to register at the third tier, you directly help support the Center’s efforts to remove financial barriers for others.
