Throwing. Intermediate/Advanced


Would you like to increase the size of your thrown work? In this hands-on workshop you will learn how to throw big with ease.
Every morning will begin with a demonstration of a new technique or a different approach such as:
centering with little effort;
different ways to open up;
cylinders wet on wet;
Greek amphora technique;
shapes leather hard to leather hard;
flat dishes the Italian way and much more.

Through exercise and with one to one tuition students will explore and practice the new techniques. We will discuss frequently made mistakes using slides and video fragments for better understanding.
This workshop is for students who are able to throw 1 kg of clay. Due to the size of the pots, it will not be possible to fire them during the workshop but at the end, everyone will go home with plenty of new skills and will be able to throw at least a 30% bigger


The total cost of the course is 900 Euro; Single price supplement: 140 Euros.

Tuition (6 – 8 hours per day, studio open 12 hours)
All materials and firings
Lodging in double room; single room on request, add 140 €

A freshly prepared Tuscan Lunch with wine on all working days.
