Wheel 1 – Thursday Evenings with Sarah Klapp

Dates: Thursday, October 7 – November 11 (6 weeks)

Times: 5–8pm

Price: $340 (clay, glaze, firing, instruction and 3 hours of drop-in open studio time included). Tools available for purchase at Clay Studio.

Description: Over the course of 6 weeks we will meet in the studio to explore the fundamentals of throwing on the potter’s wheel. From the basics of wedging and centering, to throwing vessels and learning how to glaze them, we will provide you with the tools you need to launch your own ceramic endeavors! Experienced thrower and instructor Sarah Klapp 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.
