Beginning Spinning

This class is perfect for the absolute beginner, as well as students with some experience that wish to expand upon their knowledge of the potter's wheel. Each week we will learn how to make a different form on the wheel such as plates, mugs, bowls, vases and more, at a slow and steady pace. To train your muscles on how the mechanics of pottery work, we will focus on making each form several times. We will also explore some hand building and surface decoration techniques to bring our pots to the next level!
