July 22nd & 23rd - Studio Workshop at my digs in Bend, OR
The Studio Workshop with Annie Chrietzberg is a hands-on learning experience in a small class setting. I will take participants through every detailed step of my making process, and answer all questions as we go. Techniques demonstrated include, but are not limited to, clay handing, imprinting of pattern, how edges of things come together, template use, making & modification, well-crafted bottoms, handles, spouts & lids, and any other direction the desires and questions of the class take us.
This session will be held Saturday and Sunday July 22nd & 23rd, 2017. I will open my studio at 9:30 so folks can arrive and get settled to start at 10:00. We will work on projects, break for lunch at a nearby eatery, then return and work until 5ish. Cost is $225
I will provide the clay, and participants can take what they make with them when they leave, or I can bisque the pieces and ship them, for the cost of shipping + $5.
All levels are welcome, from beginner to experienced.

On-line Glaze Practicum
The glaze practicum is a session of classes where I teach the technical tips and tricks that I have learned over the 26 years that I have been doing ceramics and making glazes. It is guided tour through what can seem like a daunting endeavor. As a teacher, I simplify the complex, and I lead a path through the unending and contradictory information about glaze making, teaching my methodologies and my understanding of how to get good glaze surfaces. Basically, I show you what works for me, exactly the steps I have taken to develop my own glaze palette.
When we meet on Wednesday evenings via Skype, I will give a lesson and everyone will have the chance to ask questions and ask for further explanation in real time. I will also put up an online classroom on an app called Slack, which is free. The online classroom is the place where I will post all the goodies: the documents and charts and recipes that participants can download and print up. As a participant, you can post questions for me there whenever they occur, have discussions with your classmates, and post pictures of your glaze tests as they come out of the kiln. It will be a super-supportive and encouraging environment.
