Learn to throw large flower pots on the wheel using sections and coils. 

 Limited to ten (10) students. Students must be able to center 5 pounds of clay unassisted.  Workshop cost includes clay and firing.

We begin the day by throwing a large lump of clay that will become the base for the sections.  Your sections can be as large or as small as your ability allows.  Once the height and width are achieved, coils will be added at the top.  

The flower pots will dry for about 3 weeks, then you will come back the Mission Hills Pottery to glaze them.  Cone 10 Reduction.

The NCG will provide beverages, morning and afternoon snacks. 

 Lunch will be a pot luck.  Please bring a dish to share. 

Registration for this workshop will open at 8am Monday September 11th and is limited to the first 10 applicants.

Shortly before publication of the newsletter, The Nevada Clay Guild received an invitation to exhibit at the Sahara West Library Art Gallery.  The exhibit is scheduled for June 29 – August 26, 2017.  Although details have not been ironed out by the committee, it is important for Guild members to start planning, and keeping their best work for the exhibit.  This location has the tall, museum style display cases, so larger pieces can be exhibited and are encouraged.  Like last year, each member will be able to submit 2 – 3 well made pieces.  The reception is scheduled for the opening day from 5-6:30 pm.  Details will follow in the next newsletter as well as in electronic communications.
