Working on the potter’s wheel, students learn to center clay, throw pots in various forms, and decorate and glaze their pieces. Handbuilding techniques will also be explored. Our experienced teachers will explain all steps of the clay process and encourage individual creativity at all Six-eight week sessions allow lots of time for producing work, and the last day is Glaze Day.  Classes meet once a week for 90 minutes.
