Wheel Bootcamp

July 15, 2018 – July 21, 2018

Jana Evans

In this workshop students learn how to work efficiently and precisely with the wheel using pro-tips to create taller, thinner, faster and bigger forms. If you are looking to improve your technique, work with larger amounts of clay, or if you are just getting started on the wheel then this is the class for you! It includes techniques and strategies for centering large amounts of clay and improving your throwing skills. Various options for surface decoration are introduced. Students will have bisque work at the end of the session. Open to all skill levels.
