30.2019 Summer Throwing
A throwing and glazing intensives
Franco Rampi www.francorampi.it
July 26 – August3, 2019

Throwing. For beginners and intermediate

This eight-day workshop is dedicated to throwing and glazing. It consists in five days of intensive throwing training, followed by 3 days dedicated to glazing and decorating. There will be much individual attention for each students. On the wheel we will approach the fundamental throwing techniques. The practice of different ways of manipulating clay, from preparation to throwing and finishing processes will expand familiarity with the medium for all. We will start with cylinders, and then make bowls, jugs and mugs. Adding handles and spouts will complete the methods taught. The throwing section will finish with a review of trimming skills. We will spend three full days with glazing, allowing for much calm in this final step of the making. Starting with exhaustive demos the participants will have sufficient time to familiarize with the various glazes and to perform the glazing process in a confident manner by dipping or pouring the glaze. We will use a stoneware clay and fire in reduction atmosphere to cone ten.

The course is taught in a small group of maximum 8 students and takes place in the Nature Studio in the gardens of La Meridiana, which may be reached climbing a set of stairs. At the end of the workshop, most of the dry work will be bisqued and a selection of this will be glazed and fired.

The total cost of the course is 1600 euros

Tuition of 6 – 8 hours per day
Studio open 12 hours per day
All materials and firings
