Description

It has come time for you to move onto the next level in your quest to conquer the potter’s wheel.  You have learned to center a 3-4 lbs of clay confidently and pull your walls up evenly.  In our intermediate pottery wheel class you will refine your throwing skills and work on more sophisticated projects.  Pottery students will learn techniques to throw bigger and taller pots.

The curriculum will focus on the following:

  • Bottle Forms
  • How to throw Sets – 2-4 Nesting Bowls
  • Combined Forms
  • Large Plates (8+ inches)
  • More Surface Applications (Mishima, Stencil, and transfer applications)
  • Glazing larger vessels, pouring techniques added onto dunking, splattering, and brushing techniques

Previous wheel throwing experience is required in either a beginners class or studio hours.  Must be able to center 3lb of clay with ease.  

Classes will consist of 6 consecutive pottery wheel sessions.

Each student will get a new 25lb bag of clay at the start of the first week.  Additional bags will be available to purchase at 40% off retail if needed.  Otherwise pug clay will be available for free.

The first 5 sessions will be actual instruction and working on the potter’s wheel.  The final sixth week will be glazing your pieces.

Class fee includes unlimited use of clay during class time and the ability to keep 10 finished pieces.  ($5 each additional piece) 

Six week adult classes range in size from 4 -10 people.  Class may be canceled last minute due to low enrollment.  Payment is required at the time of sign-up to secure a spot in the class.

You will be working with “real” stoneware clays and glazes.  It is the same materials we use in the production of our high-fired stoneware.  Everything you make will be food, microwave, dishwasher, and oven safe.

Class Cancellation Policy:

If cancellation is less than two weeks prior to first class, $50 plus credit card fees will be withheld from refunds. After the first class, no fees are refundable.  If you need to miss a session you can join another session in progress as long as room is available.  We reserve the right to cancel classes if the minimum enrollment is not reached; full tuition will be refunded.
