The geology of Southeast Ohio, rich with deposits of clay and shale, gave rise in the early 1900s to a renown ceramic handcraft and manufacturing tradition that continues today. Dale Hague, ceramic artist and educator with roots in the pottery trades of Crooksville, Ohio, will provide great insight into our unique regional history during this hands-on workshop.
Workshop participants will be provided samples of locally harvested clay from our region. Dale will instruct how to prepare a workable claybody and then to create a handbuilt form. Students will learn to assess different clay characteristics and then be able to see the varied results after firing. In addition to the clay provided, participants are welcome to bring a small sample of clay (approx. 2 lbs.) dug from their own property. For more information about this, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
*This workshop is family friendly and designed for all ages. Those 12 and under must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
