Hosting a Steven Hill Workshop

Steven Hill workshops can be demonstration or participatory and they can be anywhere from 1-2 day to 2 weeks in length. 

His basic 2 day demonstration workshops covers everything from throwing to glazing, with time spent on his philosophic approach to making functional pottery. Click on the link for details about hosting a Demonstration Workshop.

In the last 2 years Steven has taught many participatory glazing workshops in which students bring bisque ware to glaze and fire. These are 3 days in length, with Steven throwing and assembling on the first day. On day 2 he lectures and demonstrates spraying techniques in the morning, with students glazing in the afternoon. Kilns are then loaded and fired overnight. On day 3 he lectures about the equipment of spraying, firing cycles in computerized electric kilns and lowering ^10 glazes to ^6.  The workshop concludes with the unloading of kilns and critiquing the glaze results. These workshops cover all aspects of  how to achieve rich and varied surfaces and colors in an electric kiln.

Steven is also available for 1-2 week participatory workshops, which include everything offered in his electric firing workshops, after a complete cycle of making pottery. These workshops usually concentrate on a narrow range of forms to encourage students to explore in greater depth. Past workshops have included: Pouring Vessels and Cups, Covered Jars, Bowls, Plates and Platters, Dinnerware, and Teapots.
