This workshop will introduce participants to throwing on the electric wheel with a variety of clays ranging from fine porcelain to local Healdsburg clay.  It will explore both traditional and experimental techniques, as well as having conversations about some of the ecological and theoretical underpinnings of claywork.  We will also discuss a few hand building techniques that can be combined with throwing on the wheel.  Participants will be assisted with throwing a few successful pieces which will be fired and will be glazed during the 2nd workshop on March 3rd. 

We are excited to partner with Healdsburg High School! The registration proceeds will be split to benefit both the HHS Art Department and Healdsburg Center for the Arts.

Class space is limited to 12 students.
