Not Down With Round: Presented by Simon Levin

In this one-day demo workshop Simon Levin will introduce techniques that will change the way you think about throwing on the wheel. The truth is that the wheel is just another hand-building tool. What might you make if you thought more openly and freely about this wonderful tool?

Techniques like paddling, faceting, adding volume from the interior, squaring, throwing off the hump, and throwing square will be demonstrated.

Simon’s workshops are always full of lively discussions, annoyingly poignant questions, playful humour and engaging dialogue. This is a good day to get your creative juices flowing and inspire your own studio practice.

The workshop will include an artist lecture by Simon Levin.

Morning and afternoon tea will be provided.
