with Lara O'Keefe
only 1 seat left
This class is appropriate for beginning and intermediate students and will focus on the development of fundamental wheel throwing skills. New students will work through the entire cycle of making wheel thrown pottery, from shaping wet clay to glazing. While experienced students will be guided through more advanced projects of their choosing.
Demonstrations will focus on the skills of wedging, centering clay on the wheel, use of tools to make basic shapes such as cups and bowls, and trimming, glazing and finishing techniques. Students will enjoy individual attention as skill progression is unique to each person.
The class includes 25lbs. of clay, studio glazes and firing. Additional clay is available in the studio store.
Wear old clothes, and bring an old towel and bring or buy a beginner's set of pottery tools to the first class. And invite a friend to sign up with you!
