Session 5: Wheel For Absolute Beginners!, Wednesday Evenings
Session 5: Wheel for Absolute Beginners!, Wednesday Evenings
Skill Level: Beginner
No clay experience? No problem! This class is appropriate for beginning students and will focus on the development of fundamental wheel throwing skills. New students will work through the complete cycle of making wheel thrown pottery, from shaping wet clay to glazing. Demonstrations will focus on the skills of wedging, centering clay on the wheel, use of tools to make basic shapes such as cups and bowls, and trimming, glazing and finishing techniques. Students will receive individual attention as skill progression is unique to each person.
Wear old clothes, and bring a beginner's set of pottery tools to the first class. (Students who have completed a beginning class should join an intermediate or continuing wheel class).
