Teacher: Jacob Adivi
Description: Kick your feet up and pour a pot of tea! In the span of five live virtual classes, we will focus on learning intermediate handbuilding skills, pulling handles, and glazing techniques which will culminate in a unique teapot and a set of cups. Whether the tea set be functional or sculptural, it is an opportunity to bring the ancient world of tea to life!
About the instructor: Since Jacob was eight-years-old, the malleability and plasticity of clay has served as his therapy. He applied his appreciation for art as an executive youth board member of the LA Museum of the Holocaust where he has curated exhibits and displayed his ceramic work. Through the museum, Jacob co-founded the non-profit L’Dough V’Dough, where intergenerational sessions focused on tolerance and storytelling are now held on college campuses across the U.S. Over the years, Jacob has enjoyed teaching hand building to children, wheel throwing to adults, and kick wheel skills to Ugandan college students. Aside from being an ardent potter, Jacob is a beekeeping enthusiast and passionate about the environment.
Please note: Participants must use clay provided by Clay Studio for all workshops and classes.
