Your class fee provides one bag of clay, firing and glazing
During this class, students will learn techniques that emphasize the creation of forms on the potter’s wheel; cups, bowls and plates by learning to throw, trim, alter, pull handles, and simple decoration techniques to personalize your work. Students will have time to explore the art of glazing but are still encouraged to take additional classes to practice glazing.
