This workshop focuses on the skill-building, curiosities, and aesthetic development of the students’ personal interests.  Through daily demonstrations, discussions, fun exercises and personal attention, participants will create well-crafted and thoughtful pottery.


Pots that are dry will be bisques-fired as part of the class.  With an atmosphere of fun and hard work, the goal is for you to experience personal growth in your work. Both wheel and hand builders are welcome.  Open to all skill levels.


Linda Christianson is an independent studio potter who lives and works in rural Minnesota.  She studied at Hamline University and the Banff Centre School of Fine Arts.  An itinerant educator, Linda has taught at colleges and universities, including Carleton College, Hartford Art School, and the University of Georgia-Athens.  She has received fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts, the McKnight Foundation, and the Minnesota State Arts Board. Her work is included in museums and kitchens around the world.  One of her goals is to make a better cup each day.
