Beyond Round: Altering Thrown Forms with Nan Rothwell
Nan Rothwell, Instructor
A two-day, hands-on throwing workshop focused on extending thrown forms beyond the circle. Projects will include multiple ways to alter thrown components into new shapes; throwing multi-part pieces by adding rings of clay; texturing using wiggle-wires and carving; and adding thrown feet and pedestals to leather-hard forms. The instructor will be in touch with the students in advance about arriving to class with ideas and images of what they want to make. The student should be able to center and pull up a cylinder.
