Beginning Ceramics : Wednesday, 6:30 – 8:30pm

Beginning Ceramics is an introduction to clay. We will learn a variety of hand forming techniques and “throwing” clay on a potters wheel. This class is geared to those with no prior clay experience or who have not yet mastered centering clay on the wheel. This class is also appropriate for those who would like to continue to learn more advanced shaping and hand building techniques, but do not feel ready for the continuing class.
