Pottery on the Wheel

July 18 - July 22, 2022

Pottery on the Wheel


Details Fee Breakdown:
Tuition: $275
Material Fee: $60

Ages 10-12

Clay can be manipulated into all sorts of shapes by pinching, coiling, connecting slabs, carving, stamping, extruding, and being thrown on the potter’s wheel. Learn about the properties of clay by first exploring the basics of hand-building, and then focus on creating wheel thrown pieces, learning to wedge, center, open and shape forms. Students will be encouraged to combine techniques using what they have learned about construction to facilitate the completion of designs that they imagine. This class is perfect for students who have worked in ceramics before, or beginner students just starting their adventure with clay. Students with prior wheel throwing experience will be encouraged to develop a unique body of work which reflects their own interests and skills. Using the natural environment of the park as our inspiration, an assortment of wheel-thrown and decorated projects will be completed by each student, fired in the electric kiln and available for pickup the following week.

This workshop will run from 9:00am to 3:00pm each day
