About this class:
This class is for beginners; people who have either never thrown on the wheel, folks who maybe haven’t thrown in a long time, or who are still getting the hang of the basics. Participants will learn or refresh the basic techniques of throwing on the wheel and learn a multitude of forms. Handle pulling and surface treatment will also be a prominent element of this course. Participants who advance through the basics will have opportunities to learn how to throw attachments like spouts and feet,and other forms like lids.
The materials fee is included in the total price and provides participants with up to up to 50 lbs of clay, their own starter set of pottery tools, glazes, and kiln firings. The clay used will be a white, high fire, stoneware. Almost all glazes are food safe.
Being enrolled in this course also entitles participants to studio time outside of class at no additional cost. For more information about Artists in the Studios including a monthly schedule of when the studio is available, CLICK HERE
Special Note: Working with clay on the wheel requires a fair bit of physical strength and coordination. Some of our participants have found the experience challenging due to chronic issues such as back pain or arthritis. While throwing on the wheel can be very good for strengthening muscles and improving dexterity, it is not for everyone. If you have any concerns or questions about your comfort level for working with clay on the wheel, please contact the Education Director firstname.lastname@example.org.
