Pottery: Mastering Bowls

We are inviting all intermediate and advanced potters to come and focus on your bowl throwing skills!

During the 1st class, Katina will demonstrate an easy way to throw a cylindrical shape, and form it into a variety of bowl forms. Then you will be invited to take the lead and get into the throwing zone. You’ll be able to make as many bowls as you want, and you’ll determine the size and form. You will also use slips to decorate the bowls, and make them look lively and festive.

During the 2nd class, you will practice precise ways to trim and fit each bowl with a foot ring. Your finished pieces will be presented to fellow students for critique and praise.

Please note that this workshop is intended for intermediate/advanced students. Minimally, you need to be comfortable handling 2 to 3 pounds of clay or as much as you want, and be able to lift the clay to 3” - 4” or as much as you can.
