Ready to try your hand at the potter’s wheel and handbuilding? There will be helpful demonstrations and lots of hands-on time in this session. You will be learning the basics of wheel throwing, hand building, and surface decoration in this fun and casual class, taught by instructor Kim Clarke.

MATERIALS LIST: Students will be provided with a 25 lb bag of white stoneware clay (cone 5) and a variety of glaze options.

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.
