Class Description (for adults 18 and over only)
Beginning Students will learn techniques for throwing basic forms (bowls, plates, mugs, pitchers etc.) on the potter's wheel as well as hand-building techniques (pinch, coil, and slab-building) if desired.
For intermediate and advanced students, I will help you refine your existing skills and expand your possibilities of form on and off of the wheel.
Classes are ongoing and students can start at any time if a time slot is available. Availability is first come, first serve. I teach beginners and advanced students together with a 8 student per class limit. Price is $165 per 6 weeks, and students must commit to 6 consecutive class sessions meeting at the same time every week. Classes are only for adults 18 and over.
Materials (clay and glaze) are not included in the class price which costs each student approximately $50, and I provide a list and locations to purchase supplies.
For many years I've worked with White Earthenware, and low-fire glazes, but my students and I have recently been exploring mid-range (cone 5-6) clay and glazes as well.
