This is an open wheel class suitable for students with some previous experience on the wheel. During this course we will assess the needs and interests of the participants while working on developing better centering, throwing and trimming skills. We will work on specific forms depending on the direction the students wish to take. This may include plates, lids, and galleries. We will also consider design details, such as handles and spouts. Mostly we enjoy the meditative quality of clay and have fun in the company of fellow enthusiasts. Clay (one bag), glaze and firing of class work are included in the fee.
