This class is for students with little to no experience throwing on the wheel. Students will learn the fundamentals of throwing on the pottery wheel during this session.
Skills that we will focus on will be wedging, centering, and pulling a cylinder. Cylinders are a form that can be coaxed into a variety of functional shapes. We will also learn how to create a pulled and extruded handle.
Surface decoration techniques that will be introduced are some basic slip and underglaze design with sgraffito. Last but not least, glazing will be the final topic to be covered.
Students typically complete around 3-5 pieces to fire and glaze.
Class fee includes 1, 25 lb bag of clay, glaze, tools, and all firings.
