Course Description

Throwing bigger shapes is a goal many of us have because it gives us more room to express ourselves. This 6-week course focuses on the basic techniques and methods for managing and creating with larger amounts of clay on the potter's wheel. Beyond exploring forms that can be made with more clay, we will cover spiral wedging, centering bigger pieces of clay, trimming larger pieces, and glazing larger pots. This course will be most successful for the student who can already center two pounds of clay and throw a two-pound cylinder with even walls. We hope to build the skills of the class members by working in increments of 3, 5, and 8 pounds. - Open studio time to practice throwing on your own each week. Please see the Student Practice page on the website for current practice hours. - 35 pounds of clay (including firing and glazing). - Basic tools for your use during class. (Bring a towel and apron if you like.) (There are no make up classes for this course. If you need to miss a class, speak with your instructor about what you will miss. Try to get extra studio practice that week, and follow any guidelines for learning what you will miss that your instructor may have for you.)
