Exploring Sectional Throwing

Exploring Sectional Throwing

This is a 5-day workshop.  Classes run 9-4pm with lunch included.

Challenge your understanding of the limits of the clay medium; open up new avenues of expression by learning the secrets of Arlynn’s seemingly impossible forms. Find inspiration to develop your own composite construction techniques with Arlynn’s guidance for altering and assembling thrown forms.
Learn the art of indenting and stretching to add interest and fluidity to your forms.

We’ll be making 2-part vases and 2-part bowls.

There will be a PowerPoint Presentation on why we need Sectional Throwing.
