This workshop is designed to suit the student with minimal wheel throwing experience. Typically a double walled vessel is made by throwing two walls at the same time and then joining these walls to form a single hollow wall. Usually this exercise is reserved for the more advanced thrower but this same end can be achieved with more success and less developed throwing skills using basic throwing technique, slab rolling, joining, and/or the use of a simple hump or slump mold. Students will be shown and implement the entire process from beginning to end through instructor demonstrations and individualized guidance. Each student will complete one double walled bowl which will be glazed by the staff at Sawmill according to the student's wishes and be ready to pick up from the studio two weeks later. Students will also have the individual components to construct another bowl outside of the workshop. Use this technique to reliably create striking bowls which appear to swell with volume possess monolithic presence!

Cost: $64
