Natural Clay Pottery Course 2021

With the success of our virtual Natural Clay Pottery Course last year, the MOA is excited to announce our partnership with FUSION: The Ontario Clay and Glass Association and The London Potters’ Guild to offer this course again! Virtually join professional potters Chris Snedden and Gene Timpany, and historic re-creator Kim Lundberg as they guide you through the process of collecting and preparing your own natural clay through to your unique pottery creation. This year we are also very excited to welcome back, renown Wyandot Artisan Richard Zane Smith, who will be providing tips and tricks on how to fire your creations using traditional methods as well as a Q&A.

This course has been redesigned for online accessibility with exclusive video demonstrations and one-on-one support from instructors who will guide you through an introduction to earthenware, a regional history of pottery making, collecting your own natural clay, and getting to experiment by creating your own pot with us!

This course is available to anyone who has an interest in learning more about creating natural clay pottery, regardless of location! Last year we had many participants from outside of Ontario, so we encourage any and all who are interested in registering.

Please note; an internet connection is required for the course and you will be responsible for finding, collecting, and preparing your own clay. Local participants are invited to fire their creations in a pit-firing on site at the MOA.
