Designed for the very beginner who is interested in a Try-It version of our extended classes. You’ll dive right in and learn to wedge and center clay, pull up walls and create functional pieces of pottery such as cups, bowls and vases using low-fire clay. Trimming your pots will occur during week 2 and you’ll underglaze and learn about various surface decorations during the final week. Students will leave pieces to be kiln fired and picked up at a later date.
