This 6-week course, will be perfect for anyone who wants to learn the basics of throwing clay on a pottery wheel or someone with little experience who wants to further develop their skills. Learn essential wheel-throwing techniques from centering to trimming. Mugs and small vases will be the first forms we practice throwing on the wheel. Then, enhance these pieces with hand-built elements such as handles and decorating the surfaces with underglaze, sgraffito, and more. At the end of this course, you will have a small collection of functional pottery as well as the confidence and skills needed to create more advanced pieces in the future. Fee includes up to 25 lb. of clay, glazes and firing. Bring an apron, hand towel and your own pottery tool kit (available at local craft stores or online).
