Beginner Pottery Class

No experience necessary

Thursday Nights: April 27-June 15, 6:30-9pm
$325 + $25 tool kit and Firing Fees
** includes 16 hours of open studio to use during the class weeks.
**Firing fees are not included and are based on the number and size of the pieces you choose to fire.

This class is for folks aged 18+ who are brand new to clay or who need to get back to basics and want to start at the beginning again. 

The class is primarily on the pottery wheel, with one or two handbuilding projects. You'll start the first week by learning how to "wedge" your clay and "throw" bowls on the pottery wheel. From there, you'll learn trimming and glazing and then move on, trying other shapes like plates and mugs. 

You'll get the chance to make a handbuilt mug or other basic hand building project. You'll also learn simple decorative techniques, including stamping and under glazing.
