Wheel 102: Creative Throwing

Intermediate students will dig deeper and continue to refine their technical skills on the wheel while exploring personal ideas, thinking innovatively, and receiving helpful advice and evaluation of their work. Weekly demonstrations will highlight diverse techniques on the potter’s wheel as participants expand their vocabulary of forms and surface. Personal focus and aesthetic development will be encouraged through class and individual discussion.
