with Emilie Parker



only 2 seats left

At this 5 day workshop for adults from 10 to 4 every day for a week plus Sunday night, you'll have fun learning the pottery wheel, creativity, new techniques, field trips and building your skill.  You'll get as much practice time as you need to really improve your skill -- hours of coached wheel time every day for 5 days -- making plates, large bowls, altered wheel shapes.  Learning and practicing centering, pulling, collaring, shaping trimming, drying and recycling.   Mornings are spent working with teacher's help on wheel skill-building or learning the wheel for the first time.  A healthy and delicious lunch is included.  Afternoons include fun creative extensions of your skills such as creating a crackeled surface, wheel based scrifitto, throwing large using coils on the wheel.  We'll also be experiencing the Huberman creativity exercises, go on a field trip to the American Museum of Ceramic Arts, Santa Monica Beach, and a demo of throwing large by guest artist Zac Hould. The class size is limited to 6 people and each will have a wheel.  There are several good hotels within 2 miles on Huntington Drive near 5th St. in Arcadia.  Transportation to and from the hotels or airbnb's is provided.  A packing and shipping service will be available for completed work.
