Here is what I plan to cover over the two days.
I hope everyone will go home with 4 or 5 teapots.
Drop in lip
Hang over lid
hand built spout.
Thrown teapot- roundie and straightie
Partly hand built/thrown teapot
Coffee pot spout
So I had to go through the process of the partly hand built/thrown teapot as I haven't made them for several years. They are a great way to get a lot of texture in that middle section. Getting the proportions of the side walls and then the spout had me chopping a few up. The first spout was waaaaaaaay to long so I did some surgery to the template. If ya can throw some little bowls and a lid ya got a teapot with this method.
The following weekend is the "Size Matters" course. It was full but a few dropped out so I have room for a couple. I think size intimidates many. It shouldn't as many of the bigware potters I know are small.
