ONSITE: Wheel Throwing Refresher

Brush up on the basics! We’ll review wheel throwing techniques and skills. Create and complete work during class, with enough time to fire and glaze. This class is open to students who have previously taken wheel throwing classes. We will review and refresh our knowledge of wedging, centering, throwing, trimming and glazing. We will take a look at various tools and how they can assist in throwing. We will also pay special attention to glazing techniques, including cone firing temperatures and how to get an excellent glaze application.
