Instructor: Guy Wolff
September 23 & 24
10am - 4pm
This class will be a conversation on traditional throwing and how its structural laws relate to you at the wheel. This will be a class open to all interested in the wheel and will be a one-on-one response to giving traditional directions to your throwing. We will learn how to move clay under compression and the use of ribs, as well as working larger and clay joinery.
