Ready to try making something other than round pottery with the wheel? Dive into using the wheel as a tool to create a variety of shapes that are not round in this intermediate wheel class instructed by our resident artist, Lily. Students will be guided in the best ways to make their pots functional and joyful to use, while gaining new skills in both throwing, hand-building and having lots of fun along the way!

Lily will teach students how to make non-round forms from bottomless cylinders, alter their pot’s profile with darting, and various ways of altering the lip of a pot such as rolled and split rims. The class will culminate with glazing the work, and learning to use surface techniques such as water etching and washes to create depth.

Turn your wheel into a hand-building tool with Lily’s unique intermediate wheel class

This three hour class will meet once per week starting and ending on the listed dates.
