Wheel Throwing - Intermediate to Advanced

Instructor: Chris Parris

Tuesdays 7pm10pm

Intermediate/Advanced level

Chris’s teaching style references his experience at KCAI and as a production potter where the throwing potter should make as many pieces as possible; this trains the hand and the eye simultaneously.  Practice makes perfect. 

As a former design engineer/product designer, Chris emphasizes how important it is to develop designs and concepts prior to making the work.  This requires a thorough understanding of how to create with clay.

LOOK as much as possible; SKETCH to refine the idea and PRACTICE a lot. 

NOTE: This is NOT a beginning wheel class.


Priority registration is given to the current students in a class. Their deadline to re-enroll is class #5 of each 8-class session. 

The number of students opting out of re-enrollment will open up that many spots, initially, to people on each class's notification list. A given notification list is solely tied to a specific class session (e.g,, May 2 - July 2). There’s no roll-over of the notification list to the following session. 

Should we be unable to fill this class via the notification list, we’ll add a registration link to this page, first-come/first-serve.


The next Tue. night session begins Sep 24. Please add your name to the notification list below if you’re interested.


TUE NIGHT CLASS NOTIFICATION LIST (For 8-week session starting Sep 24)

People on the notification list will be contacted in order should any spots open, starting Sep 3, and be emailed an invoice to register and pay within two days.
