Learning to make a pot on the wheel can be magical, humbling, exhilarating and challenging, but most of all fun.
In this course, all adults are welcome – from complete novice through more experienced potters. Beginners will be introduced to the important basics of wedging, centering, throwing a basic form, trimming and glazing bowls, cups and other vessels. Intermediate and advanced students will be encouraged to develop their own personal style, and to grow as potters. Selection of projects will be responsive to the desires of the students. The instructor will demonstrate at the beginning of each class and will respond to each student’s individual needs depending upon their level and proficiency.
In order to adhere to social distancing guidelines the classes will be small and intimate, providing a more one on one learning experience. If you do not have your own tools, the studio will loan tools to each student that will be packaged and used only by that student throughout the semester. Similarly, clay cannot be shared and the cost is $15 per bag. Max of 4 students in each class.
