This is an eight-week course for mixed level participants to advance their skills in hand-building and on the wheel. This class is designed for complete beginners but we also have an agenda for intermediate participants to go at their own pace! You will be able to take home several pieces of your very own handmade pottery by the end of the series. 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. There will also be a special project mid-way through the course that the group will decide upon. In this 8 week course you have the opportunity to fire up to 12 pieces of work! We encourage you to practice, practice, practice, and keep only what you love! The price includes eight days of instruction (one day per week) and one additional day of open studio time per week where you can practice outside of class (max three hours per session only one per week). If you miss a session you will be allowed an extra open studio day. Our on staff instructors are always around to help. 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. Only studio glazes are allowed to be used on pieces. If proper technique is not followed when glazing and there is damage to the kiln furniture, the cost of the shelf replacement or staff hours to fix it will be billed to you.
