Description

Join us for an immersive 12-week ceramics class where you’ll explore both wheel throwing and hand building techniques. This class is best for those with some experience in both hand building and wheel throwing. This course will enhance your skills and ignite your creativity.

While mastery of the wheel takes time, our focus will be on building a strong foundation and developing your skills systematically. Through hands-on practice, you will learn essential techniques such as centering, pulling, and shaping clay on the wheel. Our goal is to help you improve your proficiency and gain a deeper understanding of the wheel-throwing process.

Also discover the versatility of hand building, using techniques like pinching, coiling, and slab building. We will encourage a more project-oriented approach, allowing you to apply your newfound skills to experiment and create unique ceramic pieces.

Receive personalized guidance from our experienced instructor, who will provide demonstrations and individual feedback to help you refine your techniques. Students will also gain knowledge of glazing techniques, firing, and finishing processes.

Our goal is to provide you with the skills and confidence to continue your ceramics journey beyond the class. By the end of the course, we hope you walk away with a well rounded base knowledge of clay, and several wheel-thrown and hand-built items you made during the class and open studio sessions.

No previous clay experience is necessary.

What’s Included:

  • 12 Instructed Sessions, 2.5 hours each
  • Material and Tools: Each student will receive 25 lbs of clay, 20 firing slips, and access to tools and our large selection of custom glazes.
  • 24 free Open Studio Hours to Practice independently. Open Studio Hours are valid through the end of the 12 week course. Hours are redeemed in 2 hour “blocks”. Additional hours can be purchased at $20/2 hour block.
