Teapots can be tricky! Tackle them in this two-part, making and decorating workshop with Kate Marotz. She’ll start off creating a teapot by coiling and pinching, then in the next session, she’ll move on to terra sigillata tips and tricks. In session one, participants will learn about the basics for pinching and coiling as well as helpful hints for constructing lids, spouts, and handles.

When it comes to terra sigillata, its wonderful qualities offer an alternative to glaze, possessing surfaces akin to atmospheric firing that are achievable in an electric kiln and will stand the test of time and use. Kate will cover how to make, color, and use a wash to add depth/variation to the final surface so that you too can bring rich surfaces into your own practice.

This workshop is perfect for intermediate-advanced students that want to up their game! Check out the outline below to read more and see if this class is right for you.


All of our online workshops are recorded and, with purchase of the seat in the class, you have access to the recording(s) between workshop sessions as well as for 45 days after the workshop ends.
