This introductory wheel throwing class is designed for students who have never used a wheel before to students who are comfortable with centering and small forms. We will cover wedging, centering, and throwing small forms. For students already comfortable with the basics we will focus on improving your skills and throwing larger and more consistent forms. The focus will be on functional ceramics forms. All students will learn to work with glazes and other decorating methods that will result in lovely, functional pieces of pottery. Class includes Open Studio time.
Each student receives a credit for 2,000 cubic inches of glaze firings per 8-week session (pro-rated for shorter sessions). This credit CANNOT be carried forward from semester into another semester. We will continue to not charge for bisque firings.
Tool set includes sponge, wooden rib, metal scraper, 2 trimming tools, needle tool, wooden knife, and cutting wire.
