In this 6-session course, students will explore the basics of wheel throwing, including centering, opening the clay, and pulling up the walls to produce a cylinder. They will then learn a variety of ways to alter the cylinder to create different functional forms, as well as play with texture and different surface treatments, and use slips and glazes. Beginners will get an introduction to the process while those who are more advanced will work on improving and solidifying their skills.
Appropriate for all skill levels. No prior experience is required.
Course includes clay, bisque and glaze firings.
Please bring a towel and apron that can get dirty. Wear layers to adjust for comfort.
Course runs for six weeks, and is open to students ages 18 and older.
Classes take place at Arbutus Folk School, 610 4th Ave E, Olympia, WA. Please enter through the Arbutus door in the alley behind the building.
