Instructor: Bonnie Shileny | Class fee: $50 (all materials included)

Learn the amazing technique of horse hair pottery and the unpredictable magic these rich, black lines can bring to your pots!

The first class (April 8) will focus on hand-building bulbous vessels, similar to Native American Pueblo Pottery. Students will learn how to smooth and burnish the outer surface of the pot with a pebble or spoon.

The second class (April 13) will be spent firing the pottery and applying pieces of horsehair to the hot surface of the pot, creating smoky, organic lines. Students will learn how to finish and seal their work by buffing the outer surface with wax. Pots will be ready to take home that evening.
