Throwing Large with Jacob Robertson

NEW DATES Sunday 4 and Monday 5 August

10 am – 4 pm

$235 (includes bisque firing, clay is available for purchase at the workshop or bring your own.)

Suitable for intermediate to advanced students with sound throwing skills. In the workshop we will be throwing 2 kilos of clay or more.

Jacob Robertson works out of Lexington, Kentucky. He says of this work ‘My drive and passion for the ceramic arts comes from an excitement for creating. The ability to make new and interesting forms every time I sit at the wheel continues to fascinate me.’ Jacob will be our artist in residence from July to September.

In this workshop Jacob will show you a variety of different methods for centring and throwing larger amounts of clay. These techniques will be applied to help each student push the limits of what they are capable of making, regardless of their current skill level.

This includes:

  • how to centre more clay with less strength, coaxing not fighting the clay
  • throwing and joining stacked forms
  • throwing on attached sections
  • adding footrings without trimming
  • applying these techniques to throwing tall and wide (ie bottles, vases and platters)

Please bring:

  • a sketchbook
  • your tool kit
  • calipers if you have them ( they will be available for sale at the workshop)
  • Batts if you have them
