Learn to throw clay on a potter’s wheel. We’ll cover the foundations of wheel work, including wedging and centering clay and forming cylinders, cups and bowls. Basic glazing information will help you finish your final forms.

Classes are confirmed one week prior to the start date. In order to help us confirm classes, please register as early as possible.
You will receive 25 pounds of clay; additional clay is available for purchase.
