* Prerequisite: Cylinder Bootcamp and Handles and Pitchers

The goal of Lidded Vessels is to learn how to make well-fitting lids for any pot you'd like. We'll teach you how to make a lid multiple ways as well as talk through casserole handles, flat lids, and curved lids. By the end of class, you will have made:

- 2 pots; one flange on the lid, one flange on the pot.

- Hollow knob, handbuilt knob

- Casserole Handles

We will be challenging your thinking processes in the class. To make quality lidded pots, the handles need to not just line up evenly, but also to be ergonomic and comfortable to hold, as well as coordinate with the style of your pot. Sketchbooks are required for this class. This can be printer paper stapled together. We want you pre-thinking your designs and trying out different options on the same pots without having to make the whole pot.

Week 1:   Powerpoint learn about types of lids and what makes a good one. Flanges and Lids.  Basic lids 2 ways (bowl and plate). 

Week 2:  Throwing with intention, make what you set out to make. Throw at least one of your jars and lids. Talk about drying rate.

Week 3: Trimming lids and jars. 

Week 4:   Glazing lidded pots.

Students are responsible for:

- Bringing their own tools

- Sketchbook

- Providing their own clay. We will have plaster slabs available to recycle thrown pieces during class. DO NOT leave your clay on the plaster. It will become studio clay. No exceptions.

- Clean up. We will talk everyone through the cleanup process. If you choose not to clean up, you will not be able to take future classes.

Outside practice is not included in class. We are trying to keep these classes as cost-effective as possible. If you would like more time in the studio, feel free to become a monthly member for use of all tools and 24 hour access to the studio.
