Additional skills will be incorporated into the course, such as weighing clay, measuring and making a lid for a pot 'off the hump', trimming forms and bases, altering a rim to form a functional spout, pulling a handle, throwing and or adding a knob to a lid.

Students will be encouraged to repeat shapes, cut them up and review outcomes, thereby gaining the skills to throw pots independently and confidently, taking into consideration shape and proportion.
