Explore the ancient art of the Teapot in an exciting intensive workshop for the advancing ceramicist. This full week of hands-on instruction includes throwing and altering Fong Choo's unique miniature teapot forms, glaze techniques and secrets including spraying and layering low- and mid-fire glazes, and more. This workshop also includes a field trip with special guided tour of the SAMA ceramics collection.
At this workshop, we will explore the hand building and wheel-thrown work required to delve into your own fascination with the teapot form. Participants will develop a perspective on proportions from the large to the small, while the nature of “play” within this whimsical form will always be in the foreground.
Throughout the workshop we will work on how each part of the piece is formed along with discussions on how the many facets of the teapot can be aggregated into an aesthetically pleasing whole.
Snacks and drinks are included. This should be an exciting and informative workshop.
Please register by May 22 at our website or by calling or stopping by the store before space is gone!
