Summer 2019-Playing with Light Workshop with potter, Nan Rothwell
This is a two-day, hands-on throwing workshop focused on multiple aspects of making lamps. We will throw lamps in a variety of sizes and shapes, focusing on creating texture and designs that look great when lit from above. Sunday’s lesson will include a session on wiring lamps. You will get printed instructions with tips about wiring, and the option of purchasing a hardware kit to wire one of your newly thrown lamps. We’ll also spend time talking aesthetics about matching lamps with shades. Participants should be able to center clay and throw a cylinder. Workshop fees of $220 cover lunch, snacks, and instruction. You may purchase clay from City Clay or bring your own. Please bring packing material to transport your leather-hard pieces.
