During our annual Meet the Makers event in Los Olivos on Saturday May 25th, I will be demonstrating wheel throwing techniques in the garden area of my shop. On the hour at 12, 1, 2, and 3 for about 10 minutes I will throw a set of pieces while explaining my hand positions and movements. After my demonstration those watching may sign up to try throwing themselves. You will be given a cup-sized wedged ball of clay and about 5 minutes to experiment. (It takes me 20 seconds to throw this size chunk of clay!) You may opt to center the piece yourself or have me start it for you. If you succeed, you may opt to pay an additional $10 to have me glaze and fire it. It will be ready for you to pick up in a couple weeks.
