Throwing on the Wheel
Partnership with DukeCreate
About the Workshop
Learn how to throw pottery on the wheel! In this introductory class, you will learn the basics of centering, throwing, and trimming pots. Note that this class is focused on learning throwing techniques rather than creating a finished product, and is a requirement to use the Arts Annex pottery wheels during open studio hours.
PLEASE NOTE: This will be a 3-hour workshop that begins at 5pm. Space is limited to only 12 participants. Please only enroll if you are sure you can attend. If you must cancel, please do so well in advance so another person can take your place. We anticipate the waitlist for this workshop will exceed 100 people.
About the Instructor
Raised in Durham, North Carolina JulieRose Hinson has been creating art from the earth since she was a child. After graduating college Julie went on to spend three years working as a Butcher in Brooklyn, New York. It was here that she began to form a deeper understanding and appreciation for our connections to the earth and to ideas of sustainability and gender equality. After returning to North Carolina in 2016 Julie moved to Seagrove, North Carolina to learn how to make pots with fifth generation potter, Sid Luck.
In Seagrove, Julie fully embraced the role of artist and fell in love with clay and the North Carolina pottery community. Through playful representations of the female body and contrasting traditional forms, her work aims to inspire joy and form tangible lines of connections between diverse groups of women. Currently living and working in Durham, Julie co-founded Outer Loop Arts, a collaborative art space downtown where she teaches classes and workshops.
