August 14 – 20
This week is a chance for potters of all levels to challenge themselves with new forms, styles and sizes of wheel thrown work. There will be daily demos and lessons on a variety of topics including techniques for throwing, handle pulling, playing with form, trimming, altering wheel thrown work and a special session on throwing as meditation. The focus is on the creative process, and not the product.
What will class time be like?
Each day will start with a demo, will focus on a lot of one on one instruction, and will reserve most of the time for working on the wheel. Ambitious students can work as much of the day as they choose.
Will I need to work outside of class?
No, but you are welcome to do so.
What can I expect to create?
There should be no expectation that students will bring anything home. They may, but the focus is on the process of creating and experiencing the joy and wonder of working towards a well thrown pot.
Do I need experience to take this class?
All experience levels welcome, including beginners.
What do I need to bring to class?
Clothes that can get messy. If experienced potters have special tools they like they may bring those, but this is not required.
This class is a part of the Guild’s Summer 2022 Program.
