ITP: An Evening Exploring Clay

Friday, September 21, 2018 from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm

The evening will start at 6:00 pm with wine and light bites. This is a group networking event that will also give each participant a chance to work together, hands-on with clay. Registration is limited to 20 (sign up here).


  • Event: 2 hours of wheel-throwing, and each participant will create two clay pieces
  • Group bowls & mugs: Groups of four rotate around through each step of wheel-throwing in order to finish pieces. The result is 4 different people work on a finished product.
  • We're tentatively planning for 20 people.
  • We'll start the event off with a group exercise as an ice-breaker.

Studio Series

The Innovative Teacher Studio Series are short, intensive, hands-on workshops that will allow educators the opportunity to work with a specific art medium. The goals of the workshops are to provide educators time to deepen their understanding of the language of the medium and to discover new potentials, with the support and insights of an experienced Studio Teacher.

The workshops will be held on Saturdays in October, November, and December, and take place between 9:00am–12:00pm. Light snacks will be provided.
