Our friends, Alex and Lisa LaPella are coming into town for a few days! While they're here, we thought it might be a good idea for them to talk to our clay community about their approach to being potters and the work they make! If you're a potter, an artist, or are thinking about ever becoming a potter, you definitely don't want to miss this!

Alex and Lisa LaPella are partners in pottery as well as in life. Their collaboration in the studio has helped brand their work, making it highly distinguishable throughout the region. In this workshop, Alex and Lisa will demonstrate throwing pieces, including advanced techniques like “capping”, or throwing larger pieces in multiple parts and then joining them. They will discuss their unique approach to marketing and making a living through pottery. In addition, they will demonstrate their approach to pattern mapping and underglaze decoration. They will demonstrate multiple hand building echniques, altering thrown pieces, and more. During this workshop, Alex and Lisa demonstrate side by side, illustrating their unique studio practice and packing more information into each hour of demonstration.

So join us in the studio to watch these two amazing potters show off their stuff, and learn a ton at the same time! Light snacks will be provided. This workshop is limited to 30 people. Tickets are $40 and can be purchased by messaging us or by posting in this event's discussion page!
