Lifelong Arts: Storytelling Pottery
Updated: May 23, 2022
Older Adults (65+) are invited to gather for a 5-session workshop series where you will learn a variety of basic pottery techniques to create your own dinnerware set. These sessions will bring together the skills of pottery with the craft of meal-making to tell stories about the meals and foods we love and have enjoyed in the past. Participants will learn basic hand-building pottery techniques including: clay preparation and treatment, basic pottery-ware construction such as bowls and cups as well as decorating techniques. The fifth and final workshop will be a potluck meal using pottery made during the workshop.
Workshops are led by our maker partner ClayWood Arts.
Workshop dates: May 1, 8, 15, 22 & June 12. (NOTE: We will not meet the week of May 29 or June 5 to allow time for the finished pieces to fire and cure.)
