For current or former Bower Center clay students looking for studio time without instruction. You will have access to wheels, tools and glazes. Fire and work at your own pace! There are 4 throwing wheels and 4 hand building spots available.

MATERIALS LIST: You are welcome to use leftover clay from a Bower clay class or purchase a 25lb bag of clay from Bower ($30/bag). Glazes, tools and firings are all included in the registration fee. Please do not bring outside glazes or clay!

Please Note: Due to the number of classes, we offer and the size of our kilns, all work to be fired as a part of this class must be created in the studio.  No items may be fired as a part of the class that have been created at home.  Any outside work would need to be fired as a separate kiln rental.
