Join Joe Robinson for a workweek's worth of throwing BIG. Joe has been throwing pots for over 20 years and regularly produces works in excess of 40 inches. Joe teaches Ceramics at Linfield University and holds an MFA from Oregon College of Art and Craft. Check out or @eastcreekjoe on Instagram to see some of his work.

During the workshop, you'll have the chance to watch demos and execute works under Joe's (gentle) guidance. We'll work on throwing larger one part pots up to 20 inches and attaching sections and coils to make works of virtually unlimited scale. We'll also have an "evening films" event where we watch several master potters work to examine a range of making methods and compare with those of the group and Joe.
