Thursday Evening Throwing for Improvers with Austin Gannon September 2022


Do you want to raise your throwing game?
Are you longing to pull your pots just that little bit taller?
Are you struggling with consistency?
How do you make those bowls or mugs all the same size?
How do you throw a plate?
These questions and more will be answered by Austin.
Just by watching and looking at the way you throw, Austin has the uncanny ability to offer tips, tweaks, and ideas that will transform the way you work on the wheel.
This course is for people who have prior experience in throwing.
For those of you looking to throw larger vessels during this course, you will explore methods in your preferred throwing style.
Austin will  teach the proper preparation of clay.  Enabling you to produce larger pots with larger amounts of clay.  Then, with improved technique, you will also look at composite working and sectional throwing.
