TERRIFIC TEA SETS with HADRIAN MENDOZA, Sunday, June 5, 3-5:30 PM
Join us to create your own ceramic tea set!
Teapots and tea sets are one of the pinnacles of pottery, yet it can be difficult to make a spout that doesn't drip or a handle that balances properly. In this 2.5-hour workshop intensive with DCC instructor Hadrian Mendoza, you will learn how to create a functional tea set that includes a teapot and 2 small teacups.
This workshop is hands-on and is intended for students with a minimum of 6 months of experience at the potter's wheel. During the intensive, Hadrian will demonstrate throwing techniques for making proper teapots, as well as expert approaches to avoiding loose lids and dribbly teapot spouts. Participants will discuss important concepts around tea sets including both functionality and aesthetics.
By the end of the workshop, you will have your own handmade tea set, experience in creating ceramic teaware, and the techniques necessary to avoid drips and dribbling.
