Ages 18 and older
This course is designed to provide an artistic and creative space for community members who are Black, Indigenous, and people of color to make connections and explore clay together.
The course will focus on the primary skills of wheel throwing, including centering and trimming, as you work on the basic forms of cylinders and bowls. You will also learn about surface decorations and the glazing process. All materials, tools, and equipment will be provided. Please bring a towel and apron that can get dirty. Wear layered clothing to adjust for comfort.
Suitable for beginners, ages 18 and older.
Classes take place at Arbutus Folk School, 610 4th Ave E, Olympia, WA. Please enter through the alley behind the school building.
*If you register for a spot, please be sure to let us know if you are no longer able to attend, so that we can offer your spot to waitlisted students right away.
**New students are prioritized for this opportunity. If you are a returning student (i.e. you have participated in this program before), please email us at email@example.com to be put on a standby waitlist for last-minute empty spots. We will move the waitlist forward for future BIPOC throwing courses.
