An event every week that begins at 10:00 am on Saturday, repeating until March 9, 2024
Learn the fundamental techniques of creating pottery on a pottery wheel. In this class, participants will learn how to center clay on the wheel, shape it into various forms such as bowls, cups, and vases, and trim and finish their pieces. The class is designed for individuals with little to no experience in pottery, as well as those who have some basic knowledge and want to further develop their skills. Throughout the class, participants will receive guidance and instruction from an experienced pottery instructor, who will demonstrate techniques and provide individualized feedback. By the end of the class, participants will have gained a solid foundation in wheel throwing and will have created several functional and decorative pottery pieces.
Class fee includes instruction, multiple firings, glazes, and 25 lbs of clay per student.
This class will meet Saturdays, February 3, 10, 17, 24, and March 2 & 9 at Terrestrial Forming Pottery Studio. Students will need to pick up their finished pieces following a final glaze firing that will happen AFTER the final class. Students will be notified when their pieces are ready for pick up.
Class Fee Assistance: If the price of this class is prohibitive, scholarship funds may be available. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
About the Instructor:
Like many great love stories, Kim’s love for ceramics began in high school. She loved the limitless dynamics of the art form, and it’s been her passion ever since. Recently, she’s been apprenticing with Peter “The Potter” Johnson, the local master potter working at Terrestrial Forming in Whitehall. She’s now excited to begin her own journey creating and teaching pottery to other art lovers.
