Six week schedule:
Wedging-introduction to throwing on the wheel (practice centering and throwing small cylinders).
Week 2: Introduction to trimming.
Week 3: Concentrate on centering. Practice lifting even walls. Practice, practice and more practice.
Introduction to height and shape using rubber ribs and a variety of tools.
Combine height and shape to create unique forms. Introduction to bowls.
I highly recommend coming in to the studio in between your classes to trim your greenware ( pottery when leather hard, as opposed to trimming during class time- Use that time to create and throw!!!)
We will explore new techniques such as bottles, large bowls, and lids. Students can progress at their own pace.
The pottery created in the studio be picked up after final firing due to the limited amount of space available. Sundays, the studio is officially closed, however, if you would like to make a private" session please feel free to call for an appointment.
