*Collette Smith** will lead a two-day hands-on workshop that will begin with
cups, saucers, mugs, and move on to more complex forms. She will address the
transformation of round pots into square, oval and free form shapes.
Construction techniques will include cutting, darting, and attaching
multiple thrown parts on the spot. She will also demonstrate handles,
spouts, and added feet. The focus will be on the creation of ware that is
functional, beautiful and fun to use.*
