 February Tuesdays 7pm-9pm: Intro to Wheelthrowing

Our beginner classes are 4 sessions, starting with an introduction and basics of centering, opening, pulling walls, preparing your piece for firing by trimming, and then glazing.

Class size will be limited.

    Your first class will start on the FIRST Tuesday of the month 2/7 from 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm. Classes are then held on Tuesdays at that time for four sessions total.

    This class is a great fit for students who feel comfortable with the process of pottery and are ready to refine their ceramic skills. Throughout this course, students will observe weekly demonstrations and learn techniques for centering larger amounts of clay, throwing off the hump and creating wider or larger pieces.  Demonstrations may vary slightly based on the needs and skillset of the class. This class is for individuals who have taken a beginner class at our studio or a different studio within the last year.

    Take this class if you need practice with:

    • Centering more than 2 pounds of clay
    • Creating larger and wider pieces
    • Refining your bowl, cylinder and plate making skills.
    • Making sets and repeating forms
    • Exploring unique ceramic shapes through collaring and other techniques.
