Experience Clay and Culture of Southwest Pottery


This hands-on workshop will introduce traditional methods used by Native American potters to create bowls and vases. The first session will include coil-building and ‘paddle and anvil’ techniques using red earthenware clay. In the second session we will explore the symbolism used in the surface decoration and have the opportunity to create a visual ‘story’ on the surface of your piece. Both sessions include visual references to historical pottery and the geography of the Southwestern United States.

All work will be fired and available for pick-up after the last class day (date TBD).
