Service Description

In this 6-week class, beginners will learn basic techniques of throwing on the wheel along with related dip glazing techniques. Students will learn to wedge, center, open and pull up clay to make a cylinder shape and more! Returning students will learn to make more advanced forms, use increasingly larger amounts of clay, make multiples of selected shapes and dip and brush glaze their work. All clay, glazes and firings are included in the class fee. Students can choose to use commercially made clay or studio clay that has been reclaimed and are encouraged to wear comfy old clothes and bring a bib apron or bath size towel to cover their clothes. This class for beginner and continuing beginner wheel throwers meets Thursday evenings, 6-8:30 pm. Due to the small class size, no refunds will be available one week prior to the first class or once the class has started.
