Master Class Series – Taking Your Pots to Another Level

With Mark R Lawrence

Master Class Series - Taking Your Pots to Another Level

Level: Intermediate/ Advanced

The Master Series is a demonstration workshop series designed to nurture and inspire further explorations in clay for potters at all levels. This is a throwing focused program to encourage fluid, sensitive and confident throwing on the wheel, producing functional pots in rhythms that are uniform and relate to each other in shape and functionality. Traditional throwing techniques are taught step by step through theory, demonstrating ways to speed up the process. You will learn how to throw on the wheel head with no need for trimming, throwing off the hump, and master basic, but fundamental shapes. It is essential that students develop an honest relationship with the clay, know its limits, and understand that each time we touch the clay there must be a reason and a method to our movements. Clay is available for purchase at the VCAC front desk.  Classes in this Series:
