Join Doug Peltzman for this six hour, two part, live virtual workshop focusing on handles. He’ll walk us through a variety of techniques and insights on making and attaching handles. Handles for mugs, teapots, and vases will all be covered. The handle is the most rushed and over looked part of the making process, his goal is for students to spend as much time on handle development as they do on the pots they make. He will also share what goes into being a full time potter and maintaining a home studio. We’ll talk clay, kilns, glazes, and all things revolving around a life of making utilitarian pottery. You will have the opportunity to ask Doug questions in real time as he throws and shares his unique approach to handles.
