A perfect mix for brand new potters and those who have a basic knowledge but want more emphasis on the basics. Beginners will start with the very basics, working through the fundamentals of good throwing and hand building techniques. You will work on basic shapes such as bowls, mugs and plates. You’ll learn how to use the slab roller to stretch clay to use as a building block as well as how to texture your clay.

Basic glazing techniques of dipping and underglazing will be covered., while advanced beginners will get individually challenged at their level with more clay, and skills such as lids, nesting bowls, etc.

Cost includes 2 hours per week of open studio time and unlimited use of clay in-studio, but does not include firing fees (varies) or tool kit ($20).
