Potters Council Workshops and Conferences

Potters Council provides some of the premier conferences with nationally and internationally recognized artists. These conferences bring ceramic artists together for knowledge exchange on a wide-range of topics. We offer four national conferences, one international conference and multiple sponsorships each year.

Building Form and Surface with Sprig Molds

Sprig into Action at Kate Maury Workshop! (includes hands-on component!)


This workshop will present techniques for handbuilt and thrown functional ware with both commercial and hand made sprig mold embellishments. Attendees will have a hands-on demonstration of casting a one part mold for sprig use. Sprigs will then be explored in a variety of embellishing techniques on and off wheel in making and assembling highly decorative functional ware.

In his presentation, Theo will demonstrate the process and techniques he uses to create his narrative thrown tableware and hand built vessels.

Accepting Host/Facility Proposals

How exciting would it be to host a conference built around a theme that truly gets you energized. A conference is an opportunity to gather your own community of associates and fellow artists in one setting to share techniques and presentations that you would be hard-pressed to find any other place.
