In this four week course, you’ll discover the joys of making functional pottery on the wheel, learning the entire process from start to finish. Wheel throwing is a wonderful creative outlet and stress reliever, and this is the perfect class to get started. Beginning Wheel is geared toward absolute beginners, and is also great for anyone with a bit of experience who’d like some extra practice.

Lessons are as follows:

Week 1: Throwing
Week 2: Trimming
Week 3: Throwing/trimming review
Week 4: Glazing

Classes meet once a week for 2 hour sessions, with open studio time daily for you to practice on your own.

Course fee includes everything you need: clay, use of studio tools, a rainbow of cone 5 glazes to choose from, and firing for up to 15 pieces.

In each class session, you will build on what you learned and made the previous week, so we strongly advise you to make sure you’ll be able to attend all class sessions before signing up. It is especially important that you attend the first class, so if you think you might have to miss week 1, please consider enrolling in another session.
