Exciting new contests await you each week to develop, push and inspire your wheel throwing skills further in a fun a social environment. Not for the faint hearted but definitely an experience, the emphasis of this course will focus purely on the skill of throwing, refining and having technical abilities on the wheel. There will be no firing or completing work in these challenges. This will be a great chance to learn the art of recycling clay as well.
