$145 includes all materials

Register

Come play with clay! All levels welcome This handbuilding play-shop will teach you the basics of building a vessel (or two) with clay slabs. Using found objects - empty spools of thread, bolt and screw heads, keys, leaves - we will make impressions in the clay. I invite you to bring objects that will make an impression in clay that are symbolic for you as you create your own Story on your vessel. You will create, clean and glaze your Story pot(s) and end with a beautiful, hand built pottery piece imprinted with your story. Instructor Jude Prashaw's motto is "I Tried To Contain Myself But I Escaped." Together, let's escape into curiosity as we create Story Pots.

Instructor: Sarah Wilson

"As Agnes Martin said, “Beauty is an awareness in the mind.” My pots aspire to encourage this awareness, both in the mind and in the hands. The forms are simple and subtly imperfect. The marks that cover them suggest things beneath the surface that are neither visible nor understood. My work is concerned with beauty, but it is a quiet, uncertain beauty. I seek access to emotions and sensations that cannot be put into words." - Sarah Wilson
