Throwing Big with Gareth Mason

This event is aimed at LP members who have some throwing experience and who wish to develop the skills to create larger thrown vessels. It will include a talk from Gareth about his life, career and work, as well as a practical demonstration.

There will also be opportunities for members to practise their throwing technique, with Gareth’s guidance, to create pots at least two times what you might normally throw. Members will select one pot, which will be biscuit fired for collection at a later date.  A stoneware or earthenware clay will be provided. Members should bring their own lunch, throwing tools and an apron.
