All proceeds from this workshop go directly to the VisArts 2016 Challenge, which provides funds for VisArts summer camp scholarships, community outreach programs and support of inclusive programs for special artists.
Renowned potter and VisArts Studio Artist Xiaosheng Bi will demonstrate how to make his beautiful and functional teapots. The demonstration will include throwing a teapot body, lid, a spout off hump, pulled handle, hand-cut trimming detail and a sculptural knob.
Because of limited time, this is a demo-only workshop, but students currently enrolled in VisArts ceramic classes may use their own materials to try their hand .
As an added attraction Mr. Bi will have his own collection of teapots put to use serving various teas such as jasmine, black green and white teas along with special snacks.
