Instructor: Lynn Wood

In this virtual workshop, using Zoom video conferencing, Lynn will demonstrate two styles of slab-built lidded butter dishes.  These forms make great covered dishes for snacks and cheeses. As Lynn is known as the Pottery Texture Queen, of course, texture will be involved using her texture mats. Templates will be provided for both Elgin (U.S. east coast style butter) and stubbies ( U. S. west coast style butter) We will be exploring various handle styles and techniques for the lids and the bases, as well as different approaches to constructing the bases. So come on along and let’s get your butter and snacks cover
