Wheel Throwing - Absolute Beginner

Instructor: Sharon Virtue

Friday 6pm9pm

Absolute beginner level

This is a ‘Super Beginner’ class! 

We’ll learn the foundations of a good studio practice, so you’ll quickly pick up the skills needed to effectively wedge and center clay. We’ll throw the basic forms of a cylinder and bowl—the basis of all other forms in clay—and learn important tips to make these forms with integrity for future development. We’ll learn trimming techniques that will come in handy when we come to glazing our pots with studio high-fire glazes. As with all things, practice makes perfect. You should plan to spend at least one other day working in the studio outside of class time to improve your skills. Expect relevant demos and to spend a good part of class practicing. Come with a beginner’s mind and images of ceramic artists’ work that inspires you. 


The next Fri. night session begins Oct. 11.

Class dates: 10/11, 10/18, 10/25, 11/1, 11/8, 11/15, 11/22, 12/13
