2018 Youth Pottery Classes
Youth Pottery students will learn the fundamentals of throwing on a potter’s wheel from centering to trimming. We will practice, practice, and practice some more. Because we would like students to look at their work on the wheel as a process toward proficiency, they will not keep every pot they make, instead, students are asked to choose their best 5 or 6 pots from the three day session to carry through to the glazing stage.
Adult & Child classes follow the same format as other classes meaning we will practice a lot and select only our best pots for firing.
Students should bring a SMALL towel and dress to get messy
