CraftED: Advanced Throwing with Toluwalope Toludare
June 14 at6:00 pm - June 16 at9:00 pm$275
This workshop is intended to build on participants existing wheel-throwing skills through a dedicated time of demonstration and guidance. Participants will be tasked to scale up during the course of this workshop by setting up a desired target with the instructor in order to build confidence on the wheel going forward.
Techniques that will be covered during this workshop include:
- Centering a larger amount of clay
- Scaling up by coiling and throwing
- Scaling up through 2 sectional throwing
- Using clay more effectively by throwing thinner
Participants will pick up their pieces made during this workshop from The Edge Gallery once they are bisque-fired.
Experience throwing on the wheel is required for this workshop.
