ONSITE: All Levels Wheel Throwing

Explore wheel throwing techniques in this class designed to accommodate all levels from beginner to advanced. The instructor will work with you to develop a goal for the class that makes sense with your skill level and develop a curriculum for what you want to achieve and learn. For example, a beginner will learn the basic throwing techniques and process of finishing pottery with a set goal of what type of pieces they want to make. Intermediate and advanced students will discuss approaches to more complicated objects such as teapots, sets, larger pieces, as well as various glazing and decorative options.

About the Instructor

Nga Nguyen-Weaver

I have been working in clay since 1995 with an emphasis on functional ware. Clay is such a gratifying material for me. To manipulate a blob of dirt into something both beautiful and useful is why I create pottery. The forms and designs of my pieces are derived from observations in nature as well as careful considerations to the utility for which they are made. Although ever evolving, my aesthetic tendency bends towards simplicity. I hope that my work speaks to you as you hold it and use it and discover little quirks, nicks, finger prints... marks of the maker. I hope it brings you joy in your every-day rituals.
