Students will enjoy two intensive days learning all tips and tricks related to making lidded vessels. Join us as we simplify this very complicated aspect of the process. We will begin with a deep dive into the world of lidded vessels, various methods, the advantages and disadvantages of each technique. Students will be introduced to upwards of 5 lidded techniques—single-piece to lidded vessel; honey-pot style lid; trick lids; Gallery lids; and cusp lids. Students will learn methods for vessels such as honey jars, bread bakers, urns, teapots, and butter dishes/salt cellars. The two day workshops will allow students to pick a focus, and have ample time to get a sense for the drying times necessary for proper lid trimming and fit. Requirements: Students will benefit most from this class if they have basic wheel-throwing skills. One or two wheel-throwing courses previous to the start of this workshop is advised. Beginner/intermediate to Advanced skills recommended.
