Pottery Classes

Beginner Wheel Class

One Month Session

This is a beginner class (13 years of age +) focused on learning the basics of throwing, trimming, and glazing. We will begin by exploring functional pottery forms like bowls and cylinders. Once we have some forms thrown we explore small alterations like handles for mugs. There will be demonstrations and one-on-one time with the instructor as the classes are limited in size. You will be making pots in no time! All items you make in class will be yours to enjoy for years to come. Clay, glazing, basic tools, and firings are included in class price.

These classes have all different skill levels in them. They are structured much like the college classes I have taught over the years. Having multiple levels in one class has shown to be an awesome experience for learning and growth. It usually takes about 3 weeks to see a finished product from mud to pottery.

Cost: $150 per person ($37.50 per class- 1 class a week for 4 weeks)

This class is great for beginners and younger clay students. It teaches us how the clay works and trains our hands for the future work on the wheel. We explore the basics of hand building with clay, from pinch pots, coil pots, all the way to shaping slabs. As you work with clay you will learn how to create your ideas from the ground up. Texture, form, and rhythm, will be explored as you build functional and/or decorative work in this session. These techniques can be used to add to your wheel thrown ideas later in your practice.
*Clay, glazing Materials and basic tools are included in class price.
You must use your 4 classes within a 6 week time frame from your start date.
