About the workshop:

Centering clay and wheel throwing

We will take turns using the potter's wheel to practice centering and opening clay to make a basic cylinder. This form is the starting point for tumblers, vases and deep narrow bowls other when throwing clay items on the wheel.

About the instructor:

Lyn Riggs

I am an Art teacher with over 20 years' experience. I've taught all grade levels within NC Public School systems and Continuing Education courses at Wilson Technical Community College. Last year I started working with DukeCreate and I truly enjoy sharing my love of clay with both children and adults through various opportunities such as workshops and Professional Developments.
