Get a Handle on Handles

Intensive workshop focusing on a variety of techniques and insights on making and attaching handles. Handles for mugs, teapots, casseroles and vases will all be covered. The handle is the most rushed and over-looked part of the making process, the goal for this workshop is to spend as much thought and time on handle development as on the pot itself. Students should come prepared with leather-hard pieces in need of handles and will also get to practice on demo pieces.
