Basic Wheel Throwing
Learn the basics of creating wheel-thrown pottery in a working studio. Subjects covered will include wedging, centering, creating basic forms, and trimming. The last class will focus on glazing and decorating projects. A beginning student should expect to have 3-4 finished pieces when completed with class.
All supplies are included, 25 lbs. of clay, a tool set, and use of studio equipment. Students are welcome to bring their own tools. Additional clay can be purchased separately.
Space is limited to 2 students per class
Open Studio time is available to experienced students, or students currently enrolled in a 5 week class. This open format is self-directed for those looking to practice, finish class projects or work on separate projects. Staff will be on hand for general questions, but students are encouraged to work on their own.
Clay must be purchased from the studio to ensure a successful drying and firing process, and students are welcome to use studio tools.
Space is limited to 4 students per class
Handbuilding is another method of creating pottery pieces. This can include everything from Christmas ornaments to sculpture pieces. Handbuilding is done using slab construction, coil method, pinch method or other method using only hands and tools. Students will have basic objectives to learn skills necessary to join clay together and learn decorative techniques to create durable aesthetic or functional work.
