Staying Centered (Or Not) Wheel Throwing Workshop with Victoria Baron

Sometimes symmetry is overrated, so in this workshop we will focus on making forms with the option to alter their shapes after they have been thrown. Our goal is to have fun enjoying the process of working with clay while creating functional pieces that you will enjoy using. All skill levels are welcome and we will help you learn basic throwing techniques or build on the skills you already have. This workshop will focus on making basic forms and then you will have the option to alter them by changing the shape, adding handles or spouts and decorating with carving and texture. The demos will include basic cylinders, spouts, handles and lids, but you can make whatever you like, or nothing at all and just throw for fun. The cost is $125, 6:30-8:30 p.m. Mondays, Feb. 13 to Apr. 10, 108 Sharadin (8 sessions, skipping Spring Break Mar. 13). For more information, contact kuclayclub@gmail.com.
