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.
