The Potter’s Studio Presents a Two-Day Workshop with Aaron Becker: On and Off the Wheel

Aaron Becker - On and Off the Wheel workshop - The Potters StudioThis two-day, hands-on workshop is designed to teach you how to loosen up a bit in the studio and allow your wildest visions to come to life! Learn how to combine wheel-thrown forms and slab-built parts. We’ll discuss how to push the design of an object to its limit and how to then refine the form to create an articulate and intellectually stimulating object. By allowing our intuition to guide and inform our decisions, we’ll construct unique objects (yunomi, mugs, jars, vases) rooted in a new vision for our current domestic reality. Basic hand-building and/or throwing skills are required.

Call 510-528-3286 to register.
