A 3 hour class for the introduction to clay where you will learn the basic skills needed to use a potter’s wheel. Class will begin with a focus on centering and compressing the clay, followed by how to open, pull up walls, and form a cylinder. Forms and functions will be discussed and introduced. Students may make a few pots depending on ability and skill development. No experience is needed. All tools and material will be provided. Each student will be given 5 lbs. of clay to work with. After clean up, students who have successfully made pots may choose a glaze color. Pieces will be trimmed, glazed and fired in the weeks following class.
