Ceramics New Zealand is proud to present our 2024 Touring Potter programme featuring Kwak Kyungtae and Marco Minetti.

This throwing – focused program is all about building confidence on the wheel. Ancient Korean throwing techniques are taught step by step through theory, demonstration, and guided practice. You will learn how to throw off the hump, and master basic but fundamental shapes from the “Sabal” or tea bowl, to plates, cylinders, larger forms, and vases . We believe it is essential that students develop an honest relationship with clay, know its limits, and understand that each time we touch the clay, there must be a reason and a method to our movements. By breaking down each step students can sharpen their skills and aspire to a higher level of craftsmanship in their own practice. Imagine all the lessons one would learn as an apprentice, condensed into 3 days. of intense practice. Students from all backgrounds and skill levels are welcome. Instruction and demos will be catered to each individual student’s goals and/or abilities. Learn how to practice and follow the path to mastery on the wheel.

This is a hands-on workshop that will be held at The Pottery by Mariel in Port Chalmers, Dunedin, at 20 Beach Street.
