Good to know : Every exercise of this workshop will be taught and made on the potter’s wheel.
In this workshop you will also learn how to throw off the hump or discover new ways to stick and trimm on the wheel, on Sunday.
A special focus on non-dripping and well pouring tea pot will be given.

Different possibilities of lid, lid nesting as well as weight of clay for the main body will be proposed accordingly to the level and the wishes of the practitioner.
