CLASS OFFERINGS

LEVEL ONE: INTRO TO WHEEL

In "Intro to Wheel" you will be guided weekly through the process of creating pottery from start to finish.  Beginners, this class is for you!  If you have taken a class before but are struggling with centering, pulling walls, or throwing a cylinder, this class is a great refresher to sharpen those skills. 

LEVEL TWO: INTERMEDIATE WHEEL

In "Intermediate Wheel" you will take the basic knowledge you have learned in previous throwing courses and expand your skillset. We generally recommend that you take two "Intro to Wheel" courses before moving up to this level. This class is for potters who can already create basic forms on the wheel but would like to learn new forms and surface decoration techniques. You will also practice centering and throwing slightly larger amounts of clay (3-4 lbs).

INTRO TO HAND BUILDING

In "Intro to Hand Building" you will learn about the possibilities of clay outside of the wheel! Using techniques such as coil building, slab rolling, pinching, pulling and more, you will learn how to create forms and expand your knowledge of clay. The possibilities are endless!

INTERMEDIATE HAND BUILDING

In "Intermediate Hand Building" you will take skills learned in your introductory course and expand on them! We will build larger vessels and complex forms. Bring your ideas and we will make them come to life! 

HYBRID: HAND BUILDING + 1.5 WHEEL

In "Hybrid: Hand Building + 1.5 Wheel" you will learn how to incorporate more hand built elements into your wheel thrown work! Two previous wheel courses are required to sign up for this course.
