July Continuing Wheel - Santa Monica
- Class Outline
Learn what else is possible on the potter's wheel and refine the skills you learned in Beginning Wheel. Classes meet weekly for two hours for a total of four sessions, with open studio time every day for you to practice on your own. See our schedule below.
850 Pico Blvd
Santa Monica, CA 90405
Challenge yourself and learn how to throw bigger, more complex, and more stable forms efficiently. Each class will focus on one category of object or skill which may include: bowls (large and small), vases and long-necked bottles, plates, advanced trimming techniques (including how to carve a proper foot and how to use a chuck to trim bottles), lidded pots, etc.
To get the most out of this class, we recommend you feel comfortable with all of the steps and processes you learned in Beginning Wheel, and can somewhat reliably wedge, center, and throw 2.5-3 lbs of clay. Typically, students take Beginning Wheel twice before taking Continuing Wheel.
You can make up to 15 pieces during the four week course. Bring your ideas! This is about learning to make what you really want to make. In addition to the weekly class meetings, we have open hours seven days a week for you to come in and work on your own.
Starting July 1, masks will be optional for those who are vaccinated and required for those who are not.
Cancellations made 4 or more days before the start of the class will be refunded. A 50% refund or 50% credit toward another class or workshop will be given for cancellations made fewer than 4 full days before the start date.
Our classes are intended for adults. Teens 14 and older are welcome if accompanied by a parent. If you have a child under 14 interested in taking a class, please contact us before enrolling.
