10 AM - 3 PM.

NO REGISTRATION REQUIRED
 
Experience the dynamic coming together of clay, fire, smoke and water in this one-day, walk-in workshop. During this exciting firing process you can actually watch the glazes melt and the colors change right before your eyes! Just walk in (FOOTWEAR IS REQUIRED), buy a piece of pre-fired handmade pottery donated by BAC potters and glaze it the day of the firing. The entire process takes approximately 3 hours.  Please arrive no later than 3 PM to begin glazing. While waiting for your pots to dry, be sure to check out other activities and shows at the Center which includes a One-Day-Only 10% OFF SALE at our Gift Shop.  Also enjoy spending some time exploring all of Buchanan's businesses, downtown and uptown, for shopping and food.
 
AND everyone is welcome to come
and just watch the fun!

PLEASE NOTE: THIS WORKSHOP HAS A NO REFUNDS POLICY.

Spend a day with internationally known, professional potter Dick Lehman while he demonstrates altering wheel thrown forms. In the morning he will throw a wide variety of pieces including a piece for every participant to keep in exchange for answering from his list of questions about themselves during the time he makes the piece.* He will then field questions about the ways he has been working with altered forms. Upon arrival at the workshop Subway lunch orders may be placed and paid for with cash only. Lunch will be followed by a power point presentation of altered wheel thrown works and another on his unique sagger firing techniques. Dick will then continue with throwing more altered forms, a reading, and surveying and trimming the finished works. Handouts will be provided during the day and Dick will have some of his finished pieces for sale.
 
* A detailed time schedule and the list of questions will be provided upon registration.

This event is being generously sponsored by
Buchanan Scarecrow Charities.
