Beginning Pottery Part 2

If you know how to throw a bowl and a cylinder and are ready to move beyond the basics, Beginning Pottery Part 2 is for you.

Students will be encouraged to come to class with a self-proposed project to work on over the course of 8 weeks. The instructor will provide demonstrations of somewhat more advanced ideas based on the work students are interested in making.

The class will meet once a week for 2½ hours. Included in the cost is 25 lbs. of clay, limited glaze firing, and open studio time during our office hours to practice what you are learning. Fired Up Studios provide basic tools kits for use during class.

Class Size: Minimum 4 / Maximum 9
