Wheel Throwing Forms for Spring – NEW!

This five-week class will focus on spring time as a theme. We’ll work on two projects that can bring some of the spring season into your life. We’ll also create a few small pots with trays and a lantern with a base.

Special Notes

  • Class will not take place on Memorial Day, Monday, May 25, 2020.


  • Students must have a wheel at home. If you don’t have a wheel at home and want to take this class, you can consider renting one from VisArts. We’ll be renting out wheels and other tools and equipment to students and the public starting Monday 4/20. If you’re interested in a rental, please send an email to our clay studio manager Jeff at [email protected] to apply.


  • This class includes 12.5 lbs of stoneware provided by VisArts as well as the ability to bisque-fire pieces made in class. Clay can be picked up from VisArts on a designated pick-up day and we’ll have scheduled drop-off days later in the session for dropping off pieces to be bisque-fired. We’ll share more information about this to students after the class is confirmed. We will also offer free delivery within 10 miles to those who are not able to drive to VisArts to pick-up their clay.


  • All online classes require students to have a computer, smart phone, or tablet with a reliable internet connection. Students will use Zoom, so please download the app or log in with plenty of time before class.
