Wheel-Throwing - Friday - Session I

with Jenny Hesseltine


Class has begun

Join us in our Ceramic Studio to satisfy your curiosity about clay! Come get your hands muddy in this fun and in-depth introduction to throwing clay on the pottery wheel! This 5-week class will provide hands-on instruction covering the fundamentals: wedging clay, centering, opening, pulling up, and shaping your pots. You will work with low-fire clay and learn about the stages that clay goes through - wet to leather-hard, bone-dry, and how to use hand tools used for trimming and creating texture on pots. You?ll learn how to decorate and glaze your ceramic work for the final firing. Please wear casual, loose-fitting clothes and closed-toe shoes that can get dirty. All levels welcome! 

Friday Session I, 5 classes, 9/30-11/4 (no class on 10/28 for firing), 9:30am-11:30am, Community Arts Center (10 Wentworth Dr.), $169 (materials included)
