In this class, students will be introduced to the fundamental skills of wheel throwing. We’ll practice wedging, centering, opening, widening and stretching clay as well as the basics of trimming. Prior to glazing fired pieces we’ll discuss the elements of glazing and decorating. Students with a bit of prior wheel throwing experience wishing to refresh and hone their skills are welcomed. This class is a great opportunity for students of all levels to explore clay on the potter’s wheel in a fun and creative atmosphere.
