Wheel throwing – Intermediate
About the Workshop
In this course, students who have mastered the basics of wheel throwing will have the opportunity to deepen and enhance their technical and creative skills through focused and hands-on instruction. Students will practice throwing consistent 6+ inch tall cylinders, focusing on making even thickness walls and gaining more height with less clay.
Students will also be taught advanced chipping techniques, learning to improve curves and creating multi curved and surfaced pots. In addition students will learn how to collar in the necks of vessels, opening up the ability to create bottle, vase, and closed form shapes.
About the Instructor
Raised in Durham, North Carolina Julie Rose 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.
