THURSDAY & FRIDAY, JANUARY 28 & 29, 2021
3:30-5:30PM PT / 6:30-8:30PM ET
Instructor: Lynn Wood
In this virtual workshop, using Zoom video conferencing, Lynn will demonstrate making a unique rectangular slab teapot from start to finish. Details that will be covered include making a good teapot spout, a lid that fits, and integrating all the parts to work together. As you work on this iconic pottery form, skills will be practiced and improved. Lynn will also discuss her style of glazing and completing this teapot. Day 1: create the body of the teapot and use sprigs to personalize the form; Day 2: building the teapot. Free templates are included in this workshop.
The demonstration will last for approximately 1.75 hours, after which there will be some time reserved for more in-depth, live Q&A. All workshops will be hosted by the Sonoma Ceramics staff; participants will be encouraged to ask questions using the chat forum in Zoom, and the host will communicate these questions to the instructor during her demo.
Many participants choose to observe the virtual workshop and work later, but you may also work alongside the instructor during the demo. All students will receive the Zoom recording of the workshop to watch at their convenience for two weeks after the workshop.
Participants must pre-register for the workshop Zoom access & tool list. Once you register, the links will be in your confirmation email.
