Students will learn how to wheel-throw as well as hand-build functional teapots in this 9-day workshop with Xiaosheng Bi, a master of the art of teapot making. .
By leaning to throw off the hump students will master the different functional parts of a teapot; the body, lid, spout and handle. Emphasis will be placed on matching different lids with different handle types as well as the finer points of hand-cutting a sculptural knob to match perfectly with the size and shape of each teapot.
This class is for students who have experience with clay.
