About

The teapot is a delicious design problem for a potter. With 4 major elements in its composition - the body, the lid, the spout and the handle - it's an exacting exercise in making and assembly. Add to that, a well-made tea pot must be balanced in weight and pour the tea in an unfettered, elegant flow. 

This 3-day workshop will explore the teapot as a design challenge. The aim is for participants to consider the various design aspects of making a teapot, both functional and aesthetic. The teapots made during the workshop can be wheel-thrown or handbuilt. At the end of the workshop, each participant will have made 2 teapots - one made by self, from scratch. Other made from the assembly of parts made by other participants.
