Master Class: Throwing on the Wheel
Dates: June 19, 20 and 21.
This hands-on intensive weekend workshop will begin with a slide show of historical and contemporary potters’ work from around the world and then give us two days to concentrate on our throwing. We will explore techniques, problems, and solutions, with particular emphasis on form and finish from rim to the foot of our pots.
