3:30-5:30PM PST / 6:30-8:30PM EST
Instructor: Lynn Wood
Part 1: Teapots are an iconic pottery form in which many skills can be practiced and improved. In this virtual workshop, using Zoom video conferencing, Lynn will demonstrate how to build the body of a teapot with slabs and all the necessary added parts- handles, and spouts. She will discuss the way the separate parts come together to function well as a whole. Details will include how to create a good teapot spout and a lid that fits well. A template is included with this workshop.
Part 2: Lynn will demonstrate how to assemble the teapot parts to create an integrated functional teapot. Special attention will be paid to proportions, angles, and functionality. This is the second part if the 2-part workshop.
