Learn the basic skills necessary to make handmade, wheel-thrown ceramics. In this class students learn step by step how to throw successfully from start to finish. Each class will begin with an in depth wheel demonstration highlighting various pitfalls, solutions, and proper body mechanics. As students practice, they will receive one-on-one guidance and correction at the wheel. We will discuss methods for trimming, techniques for handles, and of course glazing! This class is hands on and perfect for anyone who has little to no past experience in pottery. Come prepared to get dirty and make work!

Class fee includes 25 pounds of clay. Additional clay will be available for purchase as needed (All clay prices include firing and glaze materials). A basic tool kit will be needed for this class ($12)… you can either purchase tools now via our store or on the first day of class. You are also welcome to bring your own tools.
Classes also come with 8 FREE HOURS of Open Studio time to be used during open studio hours that fall within the duration of your class! More details about this on the first day of class.
