Learn the basics of wheel throwing, trimming, slip application, and glazing to make pottery during this 6-week course! Students will be guided through the basics of wheel throwing to begin exploring their artistic visions with instructor guidance. They will explore the basic forms of the pottery wheel, such as cylinders, cups, mugs, and bowls. Simple surface decoration techniques will be covered as well. To Bring: Notebook/Sketchbook and writing utensil. Old clothes or attire you don’t mind getting a little dirty. Tool kits will be available for purchase on the first day of class for $15. If students would prefer to bring in tools for class on their own, the following will be required for this class: a metal rib, wooden rib, needle tool, wire tool, sponge, wooden knife, fettling knife, and trimming tools. This is a stacked class. No prior experience required, but semi-advanced guidance will be provided for those who have thrown before. Ages 16+ Additional Costs: Glazing and firing fee: $35 One bag of clay is included in the class cost. Additional clay can be purchased from Wooten Clayworks if desired. Pay As You Go: Please note, you pay a $100 deposit when you book this course. If you do not pay the remaining $200 for the course at the first class, we do offer payment plans. However, the price per class increases to $55 each class. The deposit amount will be put towards your last 2 classes in this case. -For Intermediate/Advanced Students: You are welcome to sign up for this class if there are no upper-level classes available that work with your schedule. Instructor guidance for upper level students will take place after beginner demonstrations. Advanced students should expect modest tutorials during this class period, however, as instructor preparation for individual advanced students cannot feasibly take place during an intro course. This is ideal for students working independently looking for specialized feedback and developing their artistic voice. Additional fees may apply. Contact us for more information.
