About the event

This is a perfect opportunity to discover your skill and interest in  pottery. The workshop provides experience throwing on a wheel as well as  hand built pottery, information about clay characteristics, and glazing  options. Participants will produce completed works in both techniques.  The materials cost includes up to 10 lb. of clay, use of molds, wheels,  tools, and a variety of glazing colors.  Workshop will begin with demonstration and instruction on wheel thrown  and hand built pottery on June 21-23.  The workshop will then reconvene  July 12 - 14 for glazing techniques and completion of participants’  creations. This time lapse from participants building their pieces until  glazing allows for drying and kiln time.

Heather Scott graduated from Eastern Mennonite University; while there  she took many courses at James Madison University with an emphasis on  ceramics. She continued with post graduate work at JMU around ceramic  arts, studying with the renowned potter Masako Miyata. Heather likes to  focus on functional pottery.  ​She owns and operates Lightning Bug Hollow Studios and continues to  work in a variety of media. Heather has been a public and private school  art teacher for 17 years and currently teaches at John Handley High  School and the Museum of the Shenandoah Valley in Winchester, VA. You  can find her art for sale in several shops and galleries around Virginia  and Pennsylvania.   Lorraine White will be assisting Heather during the pottery session.  Lorraine is not only Heather’s mother but her student over the years.  She has established herself as an accomplished potter in Highland  County. She will oversee the kiln drying of the pieces and lead the  workshop on glazing techniques on July 12-14.
