great demo. I need help centering. 15 tries, 15 fails. I'm frustrated. My instructor has me use my right hand, as the wheel is turning counterclockwise, so I don't know if it's making a difference or not--I noticed you do it on the opposite side...

I want to thank you for your videos, the video on centering helped me immensely. I have had 2 pottery sessions and could not center the clay at all. Iwatched your video and when I went to try it today I was able to center it on the first try and 5 times after that. Your instruction made it easy and was the best instruction I've received. Now I need to master pulling it up because I fail each time and I end up with a floppy hat. Thanks again for your wonderful instruction. You do an excellent job instructing.

Great videos
