    Facilitator: Stacey McDonald

    Starting from scratch, the beginner will learn the essentials on the wheel. We will begin by centering the clay on the wheel and making a bowl. Building on that success, we will progress to mugs and vases where we will have the opportunity to attach handles. Proficient students will have time to make a plate, and/or explore different ways to decorate and alter your thrown forms and express your unique style. The focus of this class is to take the student from where they are, with little or no experience, and foster the skills and confidence to incorporate wheel throwing pottery into their artistic expression.

    This is a one time introductory class to learn this fun and relaxing art form. You don't have to have any previous artistic ability to "Tangle". Even though a tangling creation can look intricate and complicated, once you learn how its done you'll realize how simple it is. By using repetitive patterns and deliberate strokes tangling is an easy way to create beautiful pieces of art. Studies show that tangling increases mental retention, stimulates creativity, improves ones mood, and can be calming during stressful situations. Its like taking a nap and waking up refreshed! Plus, this meditation art form is fun! Supplies will be provided, so just grab a friend and sign up!
