Throwing Tall

Back by popular demand! This fast-paces skills workshop focuses on proper throwing technique to gain height in a cylinder form. Students cut through their work to find hidden clay in the cross-sections, and the instructor offers valuable tips and tricks for improving individual technique.

See how much taller you can throw once you know how to find the hidden clay in the base and move it into the walls in order to build height, learn how to fix common issues like the ‘waist twist’, and  how to make best use of tools that aid in throwing tall forms (metal and rubber ribs, shammy, throwing knuckles, etc). Practice clay and tools are provided.
