Event description

Description

The Archaeological Society of Alberta Edmonton Centre is teaming up with Viva Clayworks Pottery Studio once again for an afternoon of pottery fun! Sheila Macdonald, an archaeologist and potter, will be sharing her experience in archaeological ceramic analysis, styles, and manufacturing techniques. We will be discussing different methods that were used to make pottery throughout history and how archaeologists study the fragmented artifacts. You will get the opportunity to explore the properties of clay while learning hand-molding, slab-building, and wheel-throwing techniques.

While you will be able to make a variety of items in this workshop, the emphasis will be on the process and challenges of clay. You will get to keep your favorite piece, pick a glaze colour, and Sheila will trim, fire, and glaze your pieces to be picked up approximately two-weeks after the workshop.

No experience necessary. This workshop is designed for adults. Please contact Viva Clayworks Studio directly for information about kid’s classes.

Space is limited so register quick. A wait-list will be generated if this event is sold out. As always, you will need to be a paid member for the Archaeological Society of Alberta to participate. Memberships can be purchased here: http://www.arkyedmonton.ca
