This is an introduction to the potters wheel where students will practice the standard throwing steps of centering clay and bringing up the walls to form cylinders and basic shapes. While ceramics is a multiple-step process, students are encouraged to take a second class to cover finishing steps with trimming and adding handles to their pieces and also explore different methods of surface decoration, including sgraffito techniques using underglazes.

While participants will not be able to complete a project in 1 class, they are encouraged to take another class and/or glazing class to complete their pieces. Firings occur when there is enough work to fill the kiln.
