Participants will need to bring cone 10 pots filling approx. 2 cubic feet. Jackie is planning for each person to have 2 - 12" x 24” shelves worth of work, some of which will be on the two top shelves. The work on the top can be taller than 5' or 6”.
Clay can be any cone 10 clay. Jackie's preference Is B Mix with sand, into which she wedges a small amount of dark cone 10 clay for richer reds. Jackie advises not to use a dark clay on its own unless you want a very dark brown and suggests porcelain can be nice if you’re after a smooth, glossy surface. Keep in mind that for the best orange peel, it’s good to use a clay with some tooth.
Let Jackie know if you need clay – she can make a trip to Greenbarn.
$475 per person (please note: accommodation for this workshop is not included in the fee and can be arranged with Jackie, please contact her by email, ).
Deposit of $100 due by March 30th.
