This process oriented workshop is aimed toward intermediate and advanced level potters interested in making large scale work on the wheel. There will be both group demonstrations and individual instruction. Techniques covered will include coil and throw, paddle and anvil, and making pots in sections. We will also cover healthy posture and hand movements to lessen the strength on our bodies. The goal will be to learn new techniques enabling you to realize your own design ideas. As we work there will be time to talk about pottery in general, which often becomes an important part of the class.
