Focusing on the foundations of throwing, this class is geared toward the beginning potter. Throwing basics will be covered: from centering, pulling a wall and trimming your pots to altering and glazing your work. Basic forms that will be covered are the cylinder, bowl and plate. As your ability progresses adding handles, lids and spouts to your work will also be tackled. Expect a demo each night and lots of time to practice and improve your throwing skills.


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. We're limiting the number of people on the notification list to 12 max, and 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.
