Wheelthrowing

After a long day at the computer–clicking, dragging, changing dimensions and setting up grids– it's amazing to just sink your hands in clay while it slips through your fingers and responds to your touch. It's really hard to talk about the joys of wheel throwing without it sounding erotic. Quickies hopes that workshops can create relationships, spread knowledge and incubate ideas, but sometimes we really hope that students can take an hour to put their stress into a piece of clay, walk away with a smile on their face. Wheel–throwing was so popular that we did the workshop in two 15-person groups, while everyone watched each other and chatted about this and that. Quickies hopes to give students the opportunity to have these experiences regularly; getting outside their bubble while exposing the underrepresented niches of our school.
