This four day intensive class is perfect for students that are looking to push themselves creatively and to develop their wheel thrown pieces beyond simple forms. Students will start by creating pieces on the wheel and then over the course of the week will manipulate the forms learning the ideal consistency for altering successfully. Some of the techniques that will be taught are darting, throwing in two parts (goblets, and extra tall forms), oval casseroles.
Bisque firing is included, glazing and glaze firing are not included and can be completed using open studio time independently for members or non-members can sign up for our Intensive Glaze Day or take home their bisqued pieces.
