The students in this class will bring their throwing skills to the next level. You will become familiar with clay behavior on the wheel and solve some ‘centering’ and‘raising of the wall’ difficulties to become more consistent in your technique. Understanding ‘collapsing’ and ‘wobbly lip’ issues will also be addressed.
