Primitive Pottery Workshop
The making and production of pottery in the American Southwest begins in early agricultural settlements and spreads throughout the region rapidly. To this day decedents of prehistoric people still make pottery similar to what their ancestors crafted and relied upon for 1,200 years. In this extensive 2 day workshop join Jeff Martin from Primitive Lifeways where he will take you through the process of crafting pottery using Native clays identical to what prehistoric people used.
This two day workshop will cost $100.00 per person. If you are looking to attend just one day $50.00. Upon completion students will receive a free Primitive Lifeways logo sticker and certificate of completion.
Will we Fire the Pots?
When each student finishes making their pot we recommend a slow drying process so cracks to not appear. Sometimes this drying time can last up to 1 month in time. Therefore in this workshop we will not be firing pottery. However, in the following month we will host a day workshop on firing all of the pots made by students in order to turn them into a ceramic.
