Wheel Throwing Fundamentals
Ages: 18 - No Limit
If you want to try the potter's wheel for the first time, or you are new to clay and/or haven't worked in the ASLD ceramics studio, this workshop is a prerequisite for enrolling in beginning and intermediate wheel classes. This introductory workshop will focus on basic wheel techniques and introduce you to studio practices and ASLD ceramics studio policies. The first few sessions will focus on building a solid framework of skills including centering, pulling up clay, and trimming. In the final sessions you will learn to create cylinders to assist you in getting the feel of clay and the wheel. The goal of this workshop is to provide you with the fundamentals to make a successful transition into your next wheel class.
This workshop is required before enrolling in other wheel throwing courses at ASLD.
