The best way to become a better ceramic artist is to practice with guidance. This class is an opportunity to practice your wheel throwing skills. During each class session there will be instructor demos and advice, plus ceramics focused conversation and community. Students will also have access to instructional videos, covering everything from basic centering and throwing techniques, to advanced tips and project ideas. Guidance on clay water disposal will be provided.
This class is open to intermediate and advanced level students who have some wheel throwing experience and feel confident throwing a cylinder on the wheel. Access to a pottery wheel is required for participation. Ask us about our wheel rental program.
