Beginners will learn basic wheel skills: centering, opening, pulling, shaping, trimming and finishing, as well as glazing. As a beginner, you will be making variations on the basic cylinder, such as mugs, vases, and bowls. We suggest taking at least 4 sessions before moving up to an intermediate/advanced wheel throwing class. Your instructor will help you assess your skill level. If you have intermediate/advanced skills, but have never taken a ClayWays class, you must take an all level class before you can take an intermediate/advanced class.
The intermediate/Advanced (I/A) students will be learning more advanced functional and decorative projects such as dinnerware, lidded jars and casseroles, goblets, two-piece vases, lamps, etc.
Only cone 10 clay bodies may be used in wheel classes. Your class fee includes glazing and firing.
