Richard Phethean will be joining us in July to teach a one week Throwing course. The course will focus on generic forms and techniques – cylinders, bellies, bowls, plates and lips, handles, lids etc. There are regular demonstrations throughout the week. Each student has their own wheel and receives plenty of individual attention, but is encouraged to pursue their own agenda.
The course provides a disciplined and creative environment where students can learn solid, practical skills and raise their own standards in both the quality and aesthetic integrity of their finished work.
Novices will receive a comprehensive introduction to the basic principles and techniques of throwing and others a thorough review of their existing skills before progressing on to new challenges.
