Pimp That Candlestick (Keeping It Wheel!)
Join master potter Nancy Blair for a fun-filled and productive one-day workshop. Participants will create numerous simple pottery forms on the wheel and then assemble and decorate them for a tall, showy and impressive candlestick (or whatever tall thingie you want to call it). The only requirement: some experience on the potter’s wheel and a willingness to go big and be silly.
