This course focuses on the fundamentals of wheel throwing for both beginners and experienced potters. Students will develop skills in centering, throwing, trimming, decorating and glazing. We will begin by making cups and bowls and will progress into more complex forms like bottles and jars. Students will also explore how to use underglaze and transfer paper to decorate their work. A large component of this course will be discussing the importance of proportion, repetition, line, and positive/negative space. This class will be a safe space where everyone can explore their creativity with no judgment. Students of all skill levels are welcomed, and we will tailor the class to your specific goals.
Students are expected to wear closed-toed shoes, and loose clothing may make it more difficult to work. We are excited to bring people of all ages and skill levels together, and we hope to enhance your skill sets and spread happiness with clay.
The art center will provide all the basic necessities, but serious students are encouraged to buy their own tools to fulfill their specific needs. Glazes will also be provided, but the selection is limited.
