About this Class
In this class, instructors will guide students through the basics of throwing on the wheel including wedging, centering, lifting walls, and shaping basic functional forms. Students will also learn how to trim and glaze their pots, making their own pieces from start to finish! Our beginner-only classes have a smaller class size of 8 students which allows for more one-on-one instruction. No previous pottery knowledge necessary!
