Pottery: Throwing on the Wheel

April 17, 2018 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 1:00pm on Tuesday, repeating until May 8, 2018


This class is designed to teach you the basics for throwing on the wheel. While there is a lot you can learn, all you really need to know to get started is the basics, then its practice, practice, practice***. We will focus on having you be able to consistently create the cylinder. From the cylinder you will be able to create so many other forms in seconds.  Later we will cover footing and the firing and glazing process.

***Our pottery studio is small so you will have to come in at another time to practice when we are open.

Instructor: Sarah Thornton

When: Tuesday, Apr. 17 to May 8, 2018 (4 weeks)

Cost: $100 (this includes 1/2 bag of clay, glazes for up to 3 pieces and firing)

There is no minimum number of students required for the class to run. This class will run with even one student. Talk about one on one time with the teacher. The maximum number of students is 6.

Registration deadline is the end of the day on April 14. Please call to sign up after that time.
