Della Goodinson, your tutor, will teach you a unique method of beginner wheel throwing which was developed in 2021 at Risingholme Community Centre. It combines rote learning with cognitive thinking and syncs mind, body, hand tools, posture, and wheel speed to create a flow on the wheel. Learners will begin to rote learn the minute Della starts demonstrating and will be asked to participate. Learners will gain insight to their vessels with whiteboard drawings and gain more understanding of the process with handouts to reflect on their wheel throwing steps.
