  • Pulling and shaping walls for bowls, cylindrical forms, and rounded walls.
  • Trimming on the potter's wheel your previously thrown work

There will be a choice, depending on your wheel-thrown work, either:

  • Decorating – 2 decorating techniques are going to be demonstrated and explained.
  • Finishing the lid – adding a knob to the lid
  • Pulling and attaching a handle to your work

 

The glazing and firing will be done by our ceramicist unless this is expressly requested by you to do it by yourself.
