Workshop Description

In this class participants will receive an introduction to materials, equipment, and throwing techniques. The focus is on developing specific forms (e.g. bowl, cup or plate) to impart intentionality to the act of throwing. The instructor works individually with students to develop finesse and consistency in their throwing techniques.



Students enrolled in one of our six-week pottery classes will be able to participate in Open Studio for no additional for the duration of the class.  This benefit extends to the 7th week right after the session, which will allow you to finish work made in class.
