Advance Throwing – Teapots Off The Mound
Learn to throw off the mound – teapots and sets. Measure the clay in your hands, control shape, throw lids, throw spouts, throw to lid size, image the final product in pieces!
Meditate on a word/feeling, then shape clay with your hands to express that feeling, blind folded! Opens up your kinesthetic/visual synesthesia – the ability to feel what it looks like and see with your feelings! No judgement on your creations – let them flow, have a laugh, talk through the process in the group for greater understanding of creativity!

This half day workshop is focussed on the art of mould making. We will use various forms to make various moulds for slip casting and drape/slump moulding. Potters Plaster is a potter’s best friend in the creativity game, and we will learn to use it to it’s maximum!
Develop Your Range
It’s one thing to come to workshops and create nice items, or to take pottery classes and make a variety of pots. When you are ready to take your craftsmanship to another level, lets talk “range”, or style! Formatting a unified look, a statement that reflects your inspirations and uniqueness, takes skill! You will leave this workshop with a clearer idea of wo you are artistically and creatively.
