Service Description

This four week course is for beginners and intermediate level participants to advance their skills in hand-building and on the wheel. You will be able to take home a few pieces of your very own handmade pottery by the end of the series. (6 pieces max but you can practice with as much clay as you want). In this course you will learn different techniques and approaches to throwing on the wheel and hand-building; including centering, pulling, trimming, coil building, slab building, surface decoration and glazing. Spend some time in this beautiful sanctuary we have created. The price includes four days of instruction (one day per week) and one additional day of studio time per week where you can practice outside of class. You can come in for open studio Tuesday-Saturday 11-6 and Wednesdays 11-8pm. However, please note that wheels will not be available on Saturdays from 1:30-3:30 pm. Cancellation Policy: A refund will be issued if requested 7 days or more before the class begins. Only work done in the studio can be fired in the studio. We encourage you to come in for the extra day of open studio time to work on your pieces. We don't allow clay to be taken out of the studio. Please sign the studio handbook on the membership page of our website before your first class. https://www.kilnfolkclay.com/membership-policies What to wear: Comfortable clothes that you can squat in and don't mind getting dirty. (no skirts/dresses) What to bring: Bring a rag and an apron to class with you! Clay will wash out of your clothes the same way dirt does. :) Disclaimer: No guarantee is offered, explicit or implied, regarding the quality or serviceability of fired work. Every precaution will be taken to ensure the best possible outcome for every firing.
