Perfecting The Teapot

WEEKEND ONE (2-days): June 22 – 23, 2019   Classes run 9 am – 4 pm daily and students are welcome to stay late in their studio.

Perfecting The Teapot

This is a course to expand your creative approach to teapots. Starting with paper sketches and then moving to clay sketches, students will be encouraged  to rethink their designs for teapots.

Activities will include a short collaborative exercise where spouts, handles and lids will be freely exchanged to generate ideas and create possible prototype teapots. This will be the starting point to help you refine your ideas before completing a functioning drip free teapot.

The focus will be on wheel thrown teapots, but does not exclude other methods of making.
Work will not be fired. This is a hands on workshop and the focus will be on developing ideas.

Workshop level: Intermediate / Advanced, students must be comfortable throwing pots on the wheel and must have experience making pots with lids.

  • COURSE COST: $307 (Includes $291 tuition and $16 for 1 bag of clay provided by the instructor)

Tuition also includes daily lunch and snacks.  Prices are listed in Canadian Dollars and are inclusive of all applicable taxes. An accommodation package, which includes breakfast and dinner is available separately. Click here for further details.
