The Handled Tray

Prerecorded Demo and Live Q&A

Demo available: February 13
Live Q&A: February 20, 1:00 PM ET

In this video I’ll demonstrate, from start to finish, how I make handled trays. I’ll show viewers how I roll slabs and attach coils of clay to build pots. I’ll add handles and then finish the pots when they are leather hard. During the Q&A session on February 20, you’ll have the opportunity to ask questions and get more detail about aspects of my process.

Fee: $45. Participants will receive a materials list, any handouts, and the pre-recorded demonstration video ahead of the live Q&A session. They will have unlimited access to these materials until March 20, 2021.
