In this workshop you will learn the essential aspects of making functional pottery using the potter’s wheel.   The class is a great opportunity for beginners to learn basic wheel throwing skills and for those with experience to refresh and build upon existing skills.  Through a mix of demonstration and one-on-one teaching, we’ll cover a variety of techniques, forms and functions.  Class curriculum is also driven by each student’s interest and experience with opportunities to introduce more advanced techniques and projects to the group or individually.
