BEYOND THE ROUND WORKSHOP
ALTERING WHEEL THROWN FORMS
Weekend workshop - 10 am to 4 pm each day
This workshop expands traditional wheel throwing techniques and develops new shapes through the altering and manipulation of thrown forms. Whether functional or sculptural, altering your wheel thrown work adds a different dimension to your ceramic forms.
Starting with a “bottomless cylinder” thrown on the wheel, you will then investigate countless options to reshape your work for unique outcomes. This expands your making repertoire beyond more traditional round thrown forms, creating new shapes such as ovals, rounded squares and a multitude of other options. Other techniques such as paddling, faceting and soft clay manipulation of bowls, vases and cups will also be covered.
This workshop is suitable for any level of ceramic proficiency, though some wheel throwing experience would be beneficial.
Cost - $295 per person. Materials included. Tea and coffee is provided. BYO lunch each day.
The next dates for this workshop have yet to be scheduled. To keep updated about upcoming workshops at Quixotica, keep an eye on the website, follow us on social media or join our email mailing list by clicking here
Feedback from Rowley's recent wheel throwing workshops at Quixotica -
I enjoyed watching Rowley throw large objects on the wheel as he generously shared his techniques which have been acquired over many years of doing wheel work. I did find the workshop inspiring. I'm a timid thrower and I gained more confidence to take more risks while throwing and have more faith in my ability to throw large objects. It was very special having lunch on the gallery verandah too.

I particularly enjoyed that there were only 6 in our group.... I am only just a beginner potter. It certainly beats any other classes I have done with an excellent tutor, and with a small group.

I have done a few wheel throwing workshops... and Rowley’s workshop is the FIRST one I have felt catered to my needs as an advanced/intermediate beginner. The goals were achievable while still being challenging. The course content pushed me out of my little world. I thoroughly enjoyed it and felt it was very worth my while. Rowley is approachable, accepting of the full range of questions presented to him, and able to explain things in a way that is understandable. His willingness to speak of the challenges he has as a thrower and the mistakes that he has made makes him very relatable. I also enjoyed having access to our own wheel... And the fact that there was a cap on the number of participants was vital to the success of the workshop.

I enjoyed the relaxed and beautiful environment, access to the gallery, and the knowledgeable and understanding teaching style. I was inspired by the demonstrations and being able to see how various forms are thrown.
