This class is for the beginner in wheel-throwing and focuses on basic methods of centering clay and throwing simple forms such as cylinders and small bowls. Students will learn how to finish their pots including trimming and using standard decorating and glazing techniques.
In this class, students will refine the basic throwing and trimming techniques previously learned. Students will also be introduced to new techniques and challenged to complete projects such as throwing plates, sets and larger pieces.
At this level, students will concentrate on functional forms with an emphasis on individual skill building and developing a personal style. Students will be introduced to composite pieces, lidded vessels, and advanced decorating and glazing techniques.
Just a lot of Fun! Always wanted to try your hand at pottery? Here is the perfect option to explore your curiosity. We offer a 2 hour class for 2 to 12 people, where you will have an instructor help you create one piece, and then turn you loose to make your second piece. We guarantee you will end up with two pieces. After your pieces have had their first firing (may take up to 2 weeks), you may return to finish your pieces at All Glazed Up! for an additional $5 per piece charge. Our trained staff at All Glazed Up! will help ensure your pieces end up works of art.
Tuition is $50 per person.
