In this four week course, you’ll discover the joys of making functional pottery on the wheel, learning the entire process from start to finish. Wheel throwing is a wonderful creative outlet and stress reliever, and this is the perfect class to get started. Beginning Wheel is geared toward absolute beginners and is also great for anyone with a bit of experience who’d like some extra practice.
Lessons are as follows:
Week 1: Throwing
Week 2: Trimming
Week 3: Glazing
Week 4: Wrap-up and review
Classes meet once a week for 2 hour sessions, with an hour of extra time after class for you to keep working on your own. Practice time in our large indoor classroom space is available during the week and is limited to four students at a time.
Course fee includes everything you need: clay, use of studio tools, a rainbow of cone 6 glazes to choose from, and firing for up to 15 pieces.
Class sessions are held outdoors, with Covid safety procedures in place. Masks are required at all times.
In each class session, you will build on what you learned and made the previous week, so we strongly advise you to make sure you’ll be able to attend all class sessions before signing up. Make up classes are currently not available.
Masks and social distancing are required at all times at the studio.
