We, at Aura, love DIY! We eagerly look for chances to make something that is useful, user-friendly and cheap. We noticed that our resident potters had to keep leaning back away from their pots on the wheel to see how it's shaping up. The tools were all over the place and the wheel workstation was basically a huge mess!
While sorting out our studio, we had huge workstations from our office space that weren't being used and mirrors from god know's where just lying around. So we put those two together to create a kick-ass workstation for our resident potters. We cut down the height of the workstation to the same level as the wheel. Placed a mirror in the middle of the pin up board, with still some left on either side to hang tools on. Everything that you need while throwing a pot is at an arms distance now and we absolutely love that! Take a look at what our workstations look like now.
If you want to know more about how to make your own workstation, feel free to ask. You can also join us for a pottery retreat, the details of which are here. We organize these holidays that will calm you and let you pursue your passion for pottery, along with many other workshops in other art forms.
