Bud Vase Workshop

Level: Beyond Beginner

Instructor: Karli Simons

In this class, students will learn vase throwing techniques, focusing on shaping both the body and neck to achieve attractive forms, as well as refining our finished pieces through trimming and carving. Students will master crafting vases of different shapes, from tall, rounded bodies to various neck styles like tall, slender, and flared. Utilizing a chuck, they’ll enhance their creations with depth and visual intrigue. Students should be comfortable pulling taller cylinders and using various tools on the pottery wheel in preparation for this class, as these skills are essential for success.

Note: This two-day workshop is intended for clay studio members who have completed a 4+ week pottery wheel class at VCAC. All participants must be 17 year or older.

Please bring your own clay & tools.
