Upcoming Class

Intermediate Wheel Skills Class

April 26 - May 31

  • Instructor: Amy Bell
  • When: Wednesdays 6:30 – 9PM
  • Level: Intermediate
  • Price: $350.00 plus $40 for bag of clay to instructor at first class.

Dates:  Wednesdays from April 26 to May 31st (six weeks)

Time:  6:30 to 9:00 pm

In this course, students will focus on developing their throwing and finishing skills. Amy will guide you through trimming, adding handles and feet and embellishing pieces, and glazing. During the course, everyone will be encouraged to explore and develop their own style. Amy’s goal is to help you problem solve, create more complex forms, larger forms and advance your skills, in a fun environment. The course is skill based, not production-based, so students can expect to cut pots in half to help learn. You will take home 4-6 finished pots.

Prerequisite: Students need to be comfortable throwing a 3 inch tall cylinder consistently, based on courses taken in the last few years.

Cost is $350 which includes the use of tools but does not include the clay which is $40/bag paid to the instructor at the first class.

You will need to bring an apron and towel.

Cancellations:  Refunds will be issued for cancelations prior to April 20.  After April 20, no refunds for cancelations.
