Go to your nearest public library and check the pottery books on the
shelf. Most give some instruction how to throw.Then buy the book which
appeals to you . However I would strongly recommend that you look for a
local junior college, or even highschool ceramic program to take a few
classes to get started. Mia in ABQ
