"Kurinuki" is a Japanese method of hand making pottery. It means "hollowing out". In this workshop, you will experience a new way of making pottery by carving out the forms from solid blocks of clay. This contemplative process allows the maker to connect with the clay body in a new, ancient way. We will explore the addition of textures and finish the pottery with glazing techniques that will enhance the textural surfaces. No clay experience needed. All materials included.

Instructor: Diane Pontoriero

Date: Mondays, 7/22 & 8/5

Time: 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
