Slab Built Vase Demonstration | 10:30 am
As spring slowly turns to summer we have been enjoying the weather here at Rovin and especially all the colorful blooms. What better way to celebrate the season then by making pots? Join us as we explore a variety of forms, shapes and sizes while creating vases to hold our foraged flora.
We'll walk you step-by-step through this simple yet useful project including how-to make a well compressed slab, how-to prevent warping and when the clay is at the right stage for assembly. We'll also have templates available for you to take.
A few useful tools for working on any slab built project are the Xiem X-Bevel and the Princeton #4 Short Filbert Brush.
The Xiem X-Bevel cuts precise 30, 45 or 60-degree angles. It helps to make seamless joints and line up the edges just right to prevent any distortion in your form.
The Princeton # 4 short filbert makes for a fantastic clean-up tool. With firm yet responsive soft bristles and a 12" long handle it can reach into tight corners and smooth that hard to reach seam.
We'll have these featured products and much more Saturday, May 13th. Let us know if you plan to come!
