Spotlight on: pottery volunteer (March 2017)

 

IMG_1705Hannah Weber has been volunteering at the Art House since we opened (August 2015).  She will be exhibiting as part of Open Up 2017 this year – but over the last few months has been adding some throwing skills to her background in hand-building.  We asked her to give a little update for the website:

“In order to further develop my ceramic skills and knowledge, I am currently taking part in a beginner’s wheel course at the Art House.

I am enjoying spending sometime learning the ins and outs of using a wheel to make ceramic pieces. I previously attempted to teach myself throwing with the help of instructional YouTube videos, which are very helpful but for me there is no better way to learn a craft than to learn from an experienced tutor who can be at your side offering guidance at those crucial moments! I am proud of the progress I have made in the first few weeks – I feel confident about centring the clay, raising the walls of my pieces and removing them from the wheel. I am looking forward to learning more in the coming weeks and being able to create bigger and better pieces!”
