I am offering three Thursday Night Pottery sessions this winter/spring/summer, each meeting weekly for 6 weeks from 6-8 pm. We will cover the basics of Pottery – how to wedge clay, the process of throwing cylinders and bowls on the wheel and basic surface design when glazing. This session we will fire our pieces in my electric kiln and we will use underglazes as well as cone 6 glazes.
Week 1: wedging and throwing 101
Week 2: handles and trimming
Week 3: sets of mugs
Week 4: bowls on purpose
Week 5: underglaze and design
Week 6: glaze glaze glaze
I have scheduled Monday and Wednesday evenings after 5pm for open studio times for you to come in and practice in between classes. If you have interest in coming in over the weekend, let me know and we can schedule times then as well. This is a work in progress, so together we will come up with what works best for all. It’s so important to come in and practice in between classes so you can really get the hang of it.
Class cost is $300 for this session, which includes open studio time. Material costs $50 for each 25 pound bag of clay you use, firing fees included. The class size is limited to 6.
Session 1: September 27th – November 1st
Session 2: November 8th – December 22nd
Please email me if you are interested in joining one of these classes!
