|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 6:30 pm on Thursday, repeating until June 15, 2023

It’s been a full year since we were able to offer a Thursday evening beginner class!

This class is for folks aged 18+ who are brand new to clay or who need to get back to basics and want to start at the beginning again.

The class is primarily on the pottery wheel, with one or two handbuilding projects.

You’ll start the first week by learning how to “wedge” your clay and “throw” bowls on the pottery wheel. From there, you’ll learn trimming and glazing and then move on, trying other shapes like plates and mugs. You’ll get the chance to make a handbuilt mug or other basic hand building project. You’ll also learn simple decorative techniques, including stamping and under glazing.

No experience necessary!
