In Depth Night is around the corner, and I am strangely calm about it. Personally I think the reason is how much progress I’ve made in the past few months. With over 12 cups and bowls able to present, I surpassed my personal goal by over double. Now I have so much more to talk about with the visitors of my station. As for what my station will look like, well I have some other ideas.
Simplicity is bliss. Is that a saying or did I just make that up? Anyways I could have tons of information posted all over my station cluttering up the walls with what I have learned, so that people could just walk by and be impressed by how much I’ve learned. But then the people would walk away because they just saw all I know without even having to talk to me. By using this option I would be taking the easy way out, and honestly wouldn’t even be needed at my station. So I created another option.
With all my knowledge of the process I could be my own learning center. All i would need is a throwing wheel, which the school has a variety in the ceramics room. This would mean I would need to be close to a power outlet to plug in my wheel. People would come up to me as I work and could ask about my learning. Around my center I would have a couple questions, like, “What is the process of making a cup” and conversation starters like that. Scattered around my Learning Center would be all the cups and bowls I’ve made in the past couple months, this would help start conversations with people because they would see them and want to pick them up. All in all, I am very excited for my learning center and can’t wait to see how it unfolds.
