Whether you’re just meeting the potter’s wheel, renewing an old friendship or building upon existing skills, this class is for you. Through a mix of demonstration and one-on-one teaching, we’ll cover basic wheel skills as well as focused attention on a variety of forms and functions. Class curriculum is also driven by each student’s interest with opportunities to introduce more advanced techniques and projects as a group or individually.
