In this seven-week beginner course, your pottery instructor will introduce you to the basics of working with clay! You'll dive into both hand-building (making projects without the pottery wheel) and wheel-throwing techniques, and create beautiful, fully functional and food-safe pieces! Alexis will guide you in both creativity and technique, and help you explore what ceramics has to offer!
If you've already had some experience with clay, you might enjoy a fresh perspective or the opportunity to try both wheel and hand-building. After the 5th wheel session, you'll participate in a trimming class to finish up any pots you've already made to prep for a bisque-firing (first firing) in our kiln. The final session will consist of glazing bisqued pieces. They'll then be fired and ready for pickup, typically in about 2 weeks!
