The purpose of this 10-week course is to help students continue to develop and improve technical skill throwing through production and repetition. Practice of wheel throwing principles and techniques will enable development of skill through stages, while exploring various forms that are appropriately challenging. In addition, participants will further their understanding of various surfacetechniques in wet, leather-hard,bone-dry, and bisque stages. Some specific goals will include throwing and assembling, lidded jars, throwing more complex forms and learning to trim with more efficiency. Students will be challenged to be intentional with the process and set achievable goals. The course fee includes 25# clay and bisque, glaze firing fees are additional. Class size will remain at reduced capacity for increased social distancing, masks indoors remain mandatory. Proof of vaccination required prior to 1st class.
