“Throwing” is the process of shaping a lump of clay using a pottery wheel. The perfect class for students who have limited or no experience working on the potter’s wheel, and those who are looking to refresh or strengthen their basic abilities.
All Classes are Multi-Level
Beginners will learn the fundamental skills necessary to throw cylinders, cups, bowls and more. Wedging, centering, pulling, lifting and trimming are demonstrated and practiced. Basic surface decoration techniques are explored and discussed.
On going students build on basic skills and knowledge of throwing and further technical understanding of clay.
