Experimental Archaeology: Pottery

Traditional Pottery Making with Kurt McLean

In Part I of the two-part workshop, participants will learn how to construct a vessel by creating a semi-hemispherical base, coils, and using a paddle and anvil, and burnishing techniques to finish.

Part II of the workshop will consist of firing the created vessels in an open pit.  Participants will be able to keep their vessel, paddle, and anvil at the end of the workshop.
