Intro to pottery is a great class for beginners because this class provides the opportunity to try both the pottery wheel and handbuilding forms with clay. Students will be exposed to many techniques of creating with clay which may give them a better idea of what method of making they like the best!
Lily will instruct students in making projects by both handbuilding and the pottery wheel. This is a good class for people with no experience/beginner level skills who are interested in creating with clay or those who want to refresh their pottery skills. Lily will teach multiple handbuilding techniques which may include pinch pots, slab built forms, and coil pots, and also how to use the pottery wheel to make cylinders and small bowls. Glazing will also be taught and students will create several projects to take home and enjoy during this class.
This class will meet once per week for 8 consecutive weeks, starting on April 3rd.
Glazes, firing charges and one bag of clay per student are included in the class price. Similar to membership at Cascade, students can enjoy 24/7 access to the studio to work on projects. Community tools are provided or you may bring your own tools. Students get one 24 x 18 x 16 inch shelf to store projects and materials.
