Summer courses season begins

Over a long weekend, beginning 1st June, Wobage welcomed a full quota of ‘Improvers’ to participate in the first course of the season. With the dining canopy erected, the lawns mowed and the studios spring cleaned, it was great to bring the throwing studio alive with prolific activity. The 3 day course covered a wider spectrum of practice than scheduled, with demonstrations from Jeremy  that included flat-ware, jug-making,  thrown & altered forms, and slip decoration and raw-glazing for salt-firing. Also of course, plenty of basic best practice in throwing, turning and handling. It was a great group of students, further enhanced by our summer apprentice for 2012 Jack Welbourne, an undergraduate from the degree in Cardiff (UWIC). The pots moved on a pace, and did they ‘improve’, well yes did they ever!
