Beginner Wheel Throwing
Instructor: Marsha VanVlack
January 22 - April 1
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.
Advanced students enrolled in the class will be encouraged to alter the pots they make with hand built components such as slabs and coils. These additions can serve as layered texture and provide different functions for the pots being made throughout the course.
