‘You Can Handle It’ – A Pottery Workshop with Dan Finnegan
Join us for a week-end workshop exploring the use of handles on pots for the home. We’ll start with a slide show Friday evening depicting some of the English country potteries that Dan visited as an apprentice. This is a hands-on workshop and we will do several demos throughout the week-end on the wheel, but focus on pulling handles off the pot, using strap handles on baking dishes and storage jars and throwing handles for casseroles. In his own work Dan uses handles as both a decorative and a functional element and we’ll talk about other ways to think about making and using them.
Friday 7 -9, Saturday 9-5, and Sunday 10-5
Tuition: $225 (including lunches, but excluding dinners and lodging)
Additional Information: Dinners are $15 per night – Lodging is available at $50 a night
