Summer Wheel Throwing | Ages 13+
TMA pottery classes have small class sizes with individualized instruction. All skill levels are welcome from beginners to experienced potters. In this course you will be introduced to hand-building, how to use a potter’s wheel, and glazing. Understanding and control of the materials and craft will enable you to design and develop your own style.
This class meets for 6 sessions on the following Tuesday and Thursday nights:
June 4, 6, 11, 13, 18, 20
WHAT TO BRING: Items you will want to bring to class include a hand towel, a small 1-gallon pail, and a small set of pottery tools (including a needle tool, cut-off wire, wood rib, metal rib, sponge, and a trimming tool). These are available at Hobby Lobby, Michaels, Jack Richeson, online, etc for $10.00 or less. If you have other clay working tools, feel free to bring those as well. Make sure your name is on them. Remember to wear clothes suitable for working with clay, and to leave all jewelry (rings, watches, bracelets, etc.) at home.
