Course Description: A spout, lid and handle placed just right on a vessel is all you need to make a teapot. So, why is this a concept that is so difficult in practice? Does it dribble as it pours? Does the lid not fit? Is the handle uncomfortable to hold and to serve? This two day hands-on workshop will focus on bringing together the various elements necessary to make a functional teapot.
