Participants will be taught basic wheel–throwing skills and techniques such as centering, pulling cylinders, shaping, trimming, pulling handles, decorating and glazing. They can advance with the clay, increasing their repertoire of forms using slab, coil, and pinch methods, as well as learning to throw on the wheel. Participants will practice making cups, handled mugs, bowls, plates, and vases on the pottery wheel. Decoration will include a variety of colorful slips and glazes. Pottery will be microwave and dishwasher safe.
