Five Tuesday classes: 6/26, 7/3, 7/10, 7/17, 7/24, 7/31. This 5-week course will give you the foundation of throwing on the wheel.  We will start by learning the stages of the clay from start to finish, the proper vocabulary that goes along with it, and begin to talk about the two firing processes that clay goes through. During this class students will learn to throw basic shapes (bowls and cylinders) on the wheel, apply a foot to each piece by trimming, and glaze bisque ware.  Each student will have finished usable pieces to take home and be ready for an intermediate class. The class will be broken down into these categories; wedging, how to use the potter's wheel, centering, first pull, compression, shaping, ribbing, cutting off, throwing on a bat, throwing off the hump, trimming, bisque firing, glazing, glaze firing, grinding, and lots of fun!!!!! Beginners and refreshers are welcome. $245 per person.
