Come try throwing on the pottery wheel for one night! Have fun with no commitment. The instructor will demonstrate all the steps and then help students center their clay and go through all the steps to make sure that each student makes something they will be able to keep. All work will be available for pick up after the instructor bisque fires it, applies glaze, and glaze fires it (which will take about 3 weeks).

* Optional: Students who are enrolled in the Glazing 101 class (Thursday, March 23) will have the option to glaze the pieces from this class during the Glazing class. For more information &/or to register for Glazing 101 click here.
