Unlimited clay and the wheel

Throwing. For all levels

Introduction

Throwing Marathon – back to the starting line again!
There have been many sucessful editions of this classical course and it is still in great demand. The workshop consists of a five intensive days on the wheel with t
ons of clay available.

Techniques taught

Starting with a  revison of the basics, the Throwing Marathon continues with demonstrations on the wheel of different forms, including bowls, cups, plates, vases, teapots, pitchers. Then, techniques for completing some of the work like trimming, pulling handles, addition of feet, will be shown. On the wheel we’ll be pulling and pushing, altering forms, cutting and adding clay. Round pots, oval pots, square pots, handles, spouts, lids, wings and horns!

Teaching method

Teaching is based on demonstrations and much individual attention. Throughout the well structured programme, each session will provide new inputs and stimulus. Students will have plenty of time to practise all techniques shown. The Throwing Marathon does not include any firing but focusses totally on the making. It opens up a perspective of worryfree training and experimenting and is a great opportunity for real progress. Video clips for individual repetition of all techniques shown will be available to all students. A delicious mid day meal is included on all working days.
