Wheel Throwing for the Beginner or Intermediate student.
This 4-session course runs once a week on Thursdays, 1/4, 1/11, 1/18/ and 1/25 from 6-8:30pm. Total of 6 students.
In this course, you will learn the basics of throwing clay on the potter's wheel to create bowls and cups. Focus will be on learning to center the clay and creating quality work. No experience is necessary, however, throwing on the potter's wheel requires a fair amount of physical strength and control* and may not be suitable for everyone. *Upper body strength while leaning forward over your clay with your elbows on your knees is required. If you aren’t sure if the wheel is for you, email me for additional info.
You may bring an apron or towel for your lap. Short/sport length nails highly recommended. Please leave jewelry at home and clip/tie long hair back.
Sessions 1-3 are throwing and trimming days. During session 4, you will glaze your bisque-fired items in a variety of food-safe glazes and leave them to be fired in the kiln. Finished works will be ready for pickup within 2-3 weeks.
This course includes group instruction, a bag of clay, tools, glazes, storage, and firings. Each student should expect to create and fired up to 8 small finished pieces for firing, depending on skill level and experience. If your experienced and make more, you can select your best 8, or pay an additional fee per piece.
There is no makeup day for missed classes unless the teacher needs to reschedule a class due to illness or weather.
No refunds. If you need to cancel the workshop purchase, the instructor will help you fit into an upcoming course. The final glazing day may be made up of you miss it, but the wheels will be occupied with another group and cannot be made up.
