Morning Wheel Throwing Pottery Class
September 5, 2023 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
Come work with instructor Georgia Gibson in this class is a 6-week session that will introduce participants to the basics of wheel-thrown pottery. This includes learning how to wedge clay, centering on the wheel, throwing cylinders and bowls, trimming a finished piece, and correct usage tools and equipment. Each student will receive a 25-pound bag of clay and receive personal instruction in a small class size limited to 3 students. The class time period of three hours includes instructor demonstrations, student practice time, and clean-up time. A starter tool kit and a large shoe box for storage are required for each student. Tool kits are available for purchase at the art center annex building for $15.50. All completed pieces will be bisque fired in our kilns after a drying period. A separate class on glazing techniques will be held at a later date for those wishing to glaze their work.
