BEYOND Beginners Wheel Thrown Pottery

 

Fridays, 9:30am-12:30pm, Sept 9 - Dec 9, no class Oct 14 & Nov 18

 

That’s 12 weeks! This is becoming Friday morning pottery club! This course is for anyone who has taken at least one 6-8 week session with me before. We will focus on making pottery on the wheel. We’ll still start with cylinders – they’re the basis of everything, and we’ll practice throwing taller and thinner. We’ll practice shaping our pots with more intention. We’ll try using more clay, practicing centering and using all the clay from the bottom up. We’ll do this with the basic pottery forms: cylinder, bowl, vase. There will also be room to try more complex things, and also opportunities help shape our curriculum. We will continue to practice wheel trimming on all of our wares and use decorating techniques with coloured slips. I will share some of my Creativity and Style Development exercises with you (that means homework! – take it or leave it, but it does make your pottery better!) You will create a body of work, likely 20+ pieces, which will all be glazed and fired, to be picked up a few weeks after the last class – in time for Christmas.

 

This course is ideal for students who can center reliably most of the time, even if you still feel like a beginner (clay keeps us humble), as well as for those of us who have been practicing for years, because we can always continue to hone our skills. There will be a range of skill levels within the class and you will work and learn together. AND there’s usually food!

 

$756+hst=$854.28 This can be paid in two installments, with the second due on or before Oct 21. No Squarelink for this elite class! Contact me to register.
