Advanced Throwing Masterclass David Frith

This outstandingly popular advanced level course has been extended to three days of intensive tuition, and will cover all aspects of throwing with practical demonstrations and hands-on sessions using Shimpo Whisper potter’s wheels. You will throw a wide range of bowls, platters and jars as well as lidded forms. David will deal with many aspects of surface pattern direct onto the newly thrown form, including faceting, paddling and rope-impressed design. He will also demonstrate two-piece throwing to enable bigger jars and bottles to be made. To attend this course you should be a 'proficient thrower' able to comfortably and quickly throw a range of basic, medium sized forms. David Frith is one of the most respected of Britain's active potters. He has travelled extensively; teaching - both pottery and kiln-building, giving exhibitions and holding workshops.
