Pottery Class: Intermediate Throwing Wheel (10h)
We are happy to offer this intermediate Throwing Wheel class for everyone who would like to increase their throwing skills. Maybe you would like to learn how to center bigger amounts of clay, throw larger vessels or specific shapes. Maybe you have a specific project in mind but need someone to give you a helping hand and some advice. We got you! This class will concentrate on participant's individual ideas and questions. As our focus will be to help you grow your skills at the wheel we will not be glazing together in this class.
Please note: You should have around 3 months experience in working independently at the Throwing Wheel. Furthermore you should be able to handle basic techniques like centering regular amounts of clay, pulling walls and trimming foot rings as those will not be part of this class in particular. Of course you are more than welcome to join this class, even if you didn't bring the above to perfection yet.
1.Session: Saturday 11am-01:30pm
We will start the class with a little welcome throwing session to warm up. In the meantime we will discuss your individual questions and ideas for this class. Our teacher Victoria will assist you in your individual focus of this class throughout this session and the next two throwing sessions ahead.
2.Session: Sunday 11am-01:30pm
The second session is all about spending more time at the wheel to practice on your skills and individual topics. You might dive deeper into what interest you the most and ask questions about techniques, the material or general processes at a ceramic studio.
3.Session: Saturday 11am-01:30pm
During our third session you are free to continue throwing pieces and simply practice while being able to ask questions along the way or take some time to trim pieces of our previous sessions. The bisque firing of up to three finished pieces of this class is included in the price.
4.Session: Sunday 11am-01:30pm
During our last session you are free to continue trimming more pieces, attaching handles or work on your piece's leather hard surface. If you would like to finish your pieces with a glazing at our studio you are free to book a spot at our open studio on Thursday evenings. If you prefer not to glaze a piece yourself you might make use of our glazing option for 10€ per piece with glossy transparent food-safe glaze.
