Learn the basic skills necessary to make handmade, functional 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! Whether you want to make cups, bowls, pitchers, or tea sets, this class will give you the confidence to continue your ceramics adventure! This class is hands on. Come prepared to get dirty and make work!
