In this class we will learn the basic skills involved in creating functional forms on the potters wheel. Centering, pulling, collaring, trimming , and glazing will all be covered. While our focus is on the basic forms cups bowls, and plates an experimental and lively approach to the work is encouraged. No experience is required, students at an intermediate level are also welcome.
A materials fee will cover one bag of clay, glazes and firing. A materials fee of $40 is due to the instructor on the first day of class.
Instructor Name: Leslie Milofsky
Hazardous materials; Glazes are all food safe but cannot be ingested. Tools such as needle tool or trimming knives are sharp. Clay dust should not be inhaled but the room is kept clean. Dry clay dust is a respiratory hazard and we will maintain best practices in clean up and materials handling to mitigate risk.
