Potter’s Wheel Basics: Bowls, Cups, and More
Instructor: Rebecca Nightingale
September 4 - November 16
Beginners are encouraged to join this class. While most class time will be focused on making functional cups and bowls, as the students improve, other forms will be introduced. Students will learn basic techniques of how to throw clay on a potter’s wheel, decorate the surface of their pieces, and glaze to create beautiful vessels.
Rebecca recently moved to Wellsville from Rochester and has been a full-time potter going on 11 years. She enjoys carving the clay into different patterns and allows the glaze to work its magic over the varied texture. With a primary focus on making utilitarian pots, she often thinks about the function in how it relates to the finished form.
