This format is four-weeks. Classes meet for two and a half hours, once a week. Learn how to “throw” on a pottery wheel with our professional instruction creating bowls, plates, cups, etc. Then learn how to “trim” your thrown pieces. You may also choose to learn how to “hand build” with clay using both “slab” and “coil” methods. Once your work is “bisque fired” you will learn how to “glaze” your work using low fire, and/or high fire glazes. We have an amazing glaze selection, with over 60 glaze colors to choose from. All of our high fire glazes are food safe, dishwasher safe, oven safe, and microwavable.
