Autumn 12 Day Wheel Throwing Masterclass

  • Starts Sep 23
  • 5,500 US dollars

Dates: September 23rd - October 5th, 2024 This throwing-focused program is all about building confidence on the wheel. Ancient Korean throwing techniques are taught step by step through theory, demonstration, and guided practice. You will learn how to spiral wedge, throw off the hump, and master basic but fundamental shapes from the “sabal” (tea bowl), to plates, cylinders, larger forms, and jars. We believe it is essential that students develop an honest relationship with clay, know its limits, and understand that each time we touch the clay, there must be a reason and a method to our movements. By breaking down each step in the same way our ancestors taught us, students can sharpen their skills and aspire to a higher level of craftsmanship in their own practice. Students from all backgrounds and skill levels are welcome. Instruction and demonstrations will be given for the group and also catered to each individual student’s goals and abilities. New for this longer format we are including several ceramic specific cultural outings, along with several national living treasure demos and artist visits we can't wait to share with you. Students can expect to walk away with new skills, great memories with new ceramic-minded friends and a few of their own finished pieces produced during the masterclass as a reminder of their time in Toroo Studio. ****Please note: - Check in between 3pm - 5pm on September 23rd (plan to arrive at our studio during this time). - We will have a welcome dinner with all the students on the evening of September 23rd. - Teaching begins September 24th with breakfast in our studio from 8:30am. - Instruction begins each day at 9:30am, lunch will be provided around 1pm followed by a short break and again practice and instruction until evening from 2:30pm until 5:30pm.
