Pottery Wheel Classes are an instructed, hands-on experience for beginners and hobbyists alike. In this class, you will learn the various aspects of wheel thrown pottery, including how to wedge, center, throw, trim and glaze. Classes meet once a week at the times shown below with instruction and a final 1/2 hour with routine clean up. Cost for this 5 weeks session is $165 and includes glazes, kiln time and the first 25 pounds bag of clay. Additional clay supplies can be purchased as needed.
Instruction will include how to wedge, center, throw and trim clay. We will spend time getting the feel of the clay and practicing techniques to yield simple forms such as bowls, mugs, vases, etc. Week 5 will cover the glazing process.
This class is for ages 16 and older and is limited to 3 students per session. Wear your play clothes, bring a towel and ties for long hair and put your jewelry away safely; don't forget to clip your nails, short is best.
