Haliburton School of Art + Design

Enrol in Pottery Throwing Camp - Intermediate/Advanced

Course Code: ARTS0735

Please note: This course is not suitable for beginners.
Have you ever wished you could spend several days just focusing on increasing your throwing skills? Do you feel that you have 'hit the wall' in terms of being able to throw...more efficiently, bigger pieces, more consistently, looser pots, tighter pots? This course will encourage and challenge you to learn new throwing techniques, increase your throwing skills, and practice, practice, practice. Throwing is a physical skill. It requires proper technique, good tools, and proper care of your body. Through a series of demonstrations, specific exercises, class discussions, inspirational videos, and lots of wheel time, you will have the opportunity to increase your throwing skill as well as develop a personal practice of pot-making. A pug-mill will be available to make reclaiming clay as easy as possible. It is not the intent of this course to cover glazing and firing. One bisque firing may be done to ease the transport of 'trophy pots'. A limber sense of humour and a willingness to cut pots in half will make the week much more enjoyable.

Some courses require additional textbooks and/or materials. Please visit your campus bookstore in-person or online: Peterborough Bookstore or Lindsay Bookstore.
