This Southwest pottery workshop will focus on replicating the pottery types produced by the native peoples of Southeast Arizona before 1450 AD. Participants in this workshop will learn the history of these pottery types and experience the entire process of producing them, collecting and processing raw materials, forming and decorating vessels, culminating in an authentic, outdoor pottery firing.
