      Beginning Pottery 2: Throwing Off the Hump

      Throwing Off the Hump is a pottery technique in which a potter centers and shapes a large amount of clay on the wheel known as the hump, from which multiple smaller pieces are thrown off. Historically, this technique has roots in ancient pottery practices, where efficiency and the ability to produce small, uniform pieces quickly was highly valued. Over time, this technique has been refined and adapted by many cultures, contributing to its rich heritage within the ceramics tradition. Each piece reflects the touch of the potter, creating a connection between maker and user that is valued in many cultures.

      Come dressed comfortably, with clothes that can get messy.

      Tools and materials will be provided – materials included in price.

      Open Studio Hours: 7 days a week!
