In this workshop, participants will make their own clay pots inspired by our exhibition Asian Crossroads: Influence and Interaction Along the Maritime Silk Road.

Participants will learn about different types of throwing clay and watch a demonstration, then they will make their own bowl or pot. Please note, participants will have to return to pick up their artwork. The bowl or pot will be taken to a studio and fired overnight.

MakerSPACE Workshops expand on themes from exhibitions and are designed to encourage participants to explore new concepts and ideas guided by art professionals.
