Introduction to Handbuilding


Come to the pottery table and learn the basic skills needed to start you on the journey to building fantastic and functional pieces. We will spend our time learning about the properties of clay, and then the methods of pinching, coiling, and using slabs to create works that we will then finish by glazing. All pieces will be be brought to conclusion. Surprise yourself with what you can create!
Instructor: Anneke Schagen
6 weeks on Thursdays, 1–3:00
MARCH 14 – APRIL 25
Maximum 8 people, $125/person

Pottery Wheel Classes


Have you been wanting to try making pottery on the wheel? This is the class for you! During our 6 classes (spread over a 7-week period), we’ll walk you through every fundamental technique in depth. From wedging to glazing, we’ll make sure that you understand what to do, and why you’re doing it. 


You will have plenty of time to practice, as while you are registered in a class, you also have access to open studio time when the cafe is open (Wednesday through Sunday, from 9 to4).

 

We ask only that you sign in and out on the pad above the sink, that you leave the studio clean, and the tools replaced. (Please note, this is NOT time intended for production work, simply for practicing what you learned).
 

With our smaller class sizes, you’ll be sure to get plenty of one-on-one attention and tutoring tailored to your skills. You’ll leave the class with a solid introduction to wheel-throwing and maybe even make a new friend or two!
