Take your ceramic skills to the next level in this intermediate wheel throwing class.

Barbara will focus on techniques for throwing with consistent results, while also emphasizing the importance of design for making functional pots. Interested students may work on component making such as lids, spouts, handles, and/or matching sets. Everyone will finish their work with surface decoration and/or glazing.

Prerequisite: Students should be able to centre 3 lbs of clay.

Clay cost: $40, includes glazing and firing. This cost will be paid directly to the instructor at the first class.  Additional clay may be purchased if necessary.
