Intro to Pottery On The Wheel: Saturday Afternoon


SKU: N/A Category:

Classes are projected to restart June 1st. If the class start date is rescheduled due to city, state, or national mandates, you will be issued or reissued a credit for this class. We are taking all the CDC precautions to ensure the safety of students and staff. Please adhere to the signage in the studio, follow all cleaning protocols given by the instructor, practice social distancing, proper hand-washing, and we encourage you to wear a mask for your safety and the safety of other students. We appreciate your patience and look forward to seeing you in the studio!

Introduction to Pottery On The Wheel is a fun workshop where participants receive an introduction to materials, equipment and throwing techniques. The instructor works individually with students to develop finesse and consistency in throwing on the wheel.

If you are a newcomer to pottery, this introduction will quickly give you the basic tools and get you throwing on the wheel and making pots. If you’ve had some experience on the wheel in the past, you will get a refresher on the basics and personalized coaching on the finer points. If you are a potter, taking this wonderful class with a friend is a great way to introduce them to pottery.

Each session begins with a brief demonstration of an aspect of throwing, from centering to glazing, followed by hands-on time at the wheel.

Limited to three students.

If you are new to FCAC, please see the campus map for studio location.
