Description: Over the course of 6 weeks we will meet in the studio to explore the  throwing on the potter’s wheel for those with some experience. If you know how to throw a basic cylinder and are looking to expand your knowledge and technique, this is the class for you! Learn more about throwing more complex forms and develop your personal ceramics practice. This class will emphasize how to assemble pitchers, mugs, and handles. Experienced thrower and instructor Michael Adcock will teach you to focus on both the process and the product while progressing your skills each week.

Students will be encouraged to explore projects to push their newly learned skills with the support of an encouraging teacher. There will be an optional open studio block available for students who want some independent working time to hone their skills.

Drop-in open studio hours will be available for this course: Students are welcome to come in to Clay Studio during our Open Studio Lab hours to work independently on Sundays from 11AM-4PM, Mondays from 10AM-1PM, Tuesdays from 4PM-8PM, and Fridays from 10AM-1PM. Please note that Open Studio Lab hours are subject to change.
