Course Summary:

Teaching the principals of working in clay, instructors cover both hand building & wheel throwing techniques. Working with a potters wheel can be difficult at first and for the novice, a frustrating task. Our patient and encouraging instructors guide the students through this phase so that students can learn the basics skills of wheel throwing. Our unique curriuclum blends hand building & wheel throwing so that students progress in a structured classroom.

Course Details:

Far more enjoyable than just painting pieces, students experience creating their own pottery. Students will learn basic skills of wheel throwing and hand building by throwing, trimming & glazing their own pieces. From the early stages of cups, bowls and plates to more advanced pieces, students progress at their own pace. As a student advances with each semester, they begin to work independently and with the help of the instructor, start towork on more complex pieces. Classes are for all levels, beginners to advanced, and for all ages are welcome to attend. More advanced students should consider our new Practicum Series Ceramics/Sculture course.
