Discover skillful ways to trim and finish your wheelthrown pots. From a narrow bottle form to bowls with altered rims, ceramics artist Jennifer Hill will demonstrate a multitude of techniques. Learn when to say when before trimming through and discover how to create custom trimming chucks that can become new vessels after use. You are encouraged to bring your own leather-hard greenware for hands-on trimming and a half bag or more of moist clay. This one-day workshop is for students with prior wheel-throwing experience.
