Over the course of this class students will learn the to further develop their throwing skills on a potter’s wheel. This class is an intermediate throwing class, meant for people who have taken our beginning throwing class or have a good grasp on the basics of throwing. Students will learn how to create more advanced shapes and altered forms on the wheel and will work on refining their basic throwing skills. Students will also learn how to create handmade tools that will allow them to create complex forms, designs and patterns.

Students will also learn advanced decorating and surface design techniques while working with slips and underglazes. Students will leave the course with several finished pieces of functional pottery. The Centre provides all tools, equipment, glazes and firings. Students purchase clay from the Centre.
(No class on May 21)
