This intensive five day pottery class will focus on the basics of primitive, hand-built pottery. We will study ancient pottery sherds in the field at a ruin, then apply the lessons learned to actual hand-building pottery using similar tools, materials and methods as the ancient potters. This class will refine your techniques of hand-building pottery using the ancient coil-and-scrape technique. This class will cover the entire process, including digging clay, making coil pottery, polishing pottery and outdoor firing. The whole class takes place outdoors near an ancient ruin, so we will be socially distanced and working in very similar conditions as the ancient potters.
