[teacherartexchange] learning to throw

If you teach high school ceramics, take a look at this free throwing tutorial. I created and posted it five summers ago after teaching throwing for 40 years. Many teachers are now using it as a supplement to make throwing easier for their students. Teachers also find ideas to help with their own throwing abilities.

The teacher asks: "Why do people practice?"
The students respond: "To make things easier."
