Arbutus believes that one of the most important things we can do to perpetuate traditional crafts is help start the next generation of crafters. We offer a number of classes for youth of various ages.
At this time, parents registering youth should register using the parent's account.
Registration closes 3 days before the first day of class
Ages 12 and up welcome!
Want to try and throw on the wheel? or need some more time to refine your existing skills? In this beginner's wheel throwing class we will cover the basics of throwing. We will go over prepping your clay, centering, opening your form, and then move on to trimming and glazing your final pieces.
I will also demonstrate how to create a handle for drinking vessels using multiple different hand building techniques.
I recommend bringing a towel and apron, but there are a limited amount in the studio.
