Class Description
This is a month long class for beginning pottery students that want to learn wheel throwing.  The class consists of four, two-hour sessions on Thursday evenings from 6pm-8pm.

While in class, the students will receive one-on-one instruction to help them learn the delicate nuances of throwing and trimming clay on the wheel.  The studio will provide the clay and necessary tools to achieve this goal.  The student should bring a towel and/or apron to work with as this can be a messy class.

​Once the pieces are ready and have been bisque fired, the students will learn about the different glazes and how to get the most success from the glaze application process.

There will be a glaze firing after the final class.  Students will be notified within 7-10 days, after their final class, when their finished work is ready to be picked up.  All work must be picked up within 30 days from notification that the items are ready.

Any class closure due to inclement weather will be rescheduled at the earliest opportunity.

*Classes are dependent upon minimum number of students.
