PLENTIFUL PLATTERS with HADRIAN MENDOZA, Sunday, May 21, 1-4:30 PM
Join us to create plentiful plates and platters!
Aside from standard dinnerware, plates can be concave, rimmed, stretched, and sliced to create new shapes and functions. In this 3.5-hour workshop, DCC instructor Hadrian Mendoza will guide students through creating plates of varied sizes using the potter’s wheel.
Working with students through class demos and one-on-one instruction, Hadrian will cover concepts such as plate function, aesthetics, technique, and approaches to glazing. Each student will learn how to make 3-4 different kinds of plates and platters as they throw and alter clay at the wheel.
By the end of the workshop, students will have 3-4 of their own plates, as well as knowledge of the techniques for further exploration and mastery of the plate form.
Important: Participants must have at least 6 months of experience at the potter's wheel and be able to center consistently. No first-timers at the wheel.
