About this Event

Already taken a beginners throwing class and still struggling? In this intermediate class, we will go over common mistakes and struggles when first learning to throw, including centering, pulling walls, and shaping. You will get a chance to have more hands on help and refine your throwing technique.

In this class you will:
Watch a demonstration on how to throw on the potter’s wheel by the teacher
Learn about common mistakes and struggles when learning to throw on the wheel and how to correct them
Learn about the fundamentals and the process of wedging a piece of clay
Practice the stages to center a piece of clay on the wheel
Practice opening a centered piece of clay on the wheel
Practice pulling walls on an opened piece of clay on the wheel
Shape a piece of clay into a pot
Learn how to thoroughly clean the wheels after throwing
Learn the process of making ceramics at DMS to correctly store and place pieces on the shelves at each stage of the production process

Please keep in mind that throwing takes practice, and that this class will focus more on the techniques.

Special Considerations and Warnings

Throwing can get messy! Please wear clothes that you won’t mind getting dirty. Although not required, it is also recommended to have short fingernails as it is easier to throw with shorter nails.
