Great clear video and project, will definitely have to rewatch this video and attempt it later on! Beautiful work
Good tips.
I am loving Steve's classes. I only started throwing 6 months ago, and I nearly gave up as I was failing to master it. But I've been following Steve who clearly highlights learner problems and how to get past them. As a result I've enrolled on a new course in a studio and have now got over my learner's hump and and am happily throwing half decent bowls.
