This class is an introduction to the exciting process of wheel-thrown ceramics.
Developed for students with little or no clay experience, the class covers basic
skills at the potter’s wheel for creating functional work. Demonstrations will cover
wedging, centering, and forming shapes such as vases, mugs, bowls and plates.
Basic decorating and glazing techniques will be taught as well as more advanced
techniques such as attaching multiple parts to one object, throwing lids, and surface
decoration as students progress.
