Building and Wheel Throwing (Grades 6-9)

In this class, we will learn the basics of wheel throwing, wedging, centering, throwing, and forming the clay. We will explore the wheel as a tool for making both functional pottery and sculpture. We will practice each step of the throwing process and hone our skills in order to create new forms on the wheel.

Ceramics for Kids (Grades 2-5)

Welcome to the wonderful world of ceramics. In this class, we will create ceramic sculptures and pottery. We will learn basic hand-building skills: how to pinch, coil and slab build to create sculptures and how to throw on the wheel. We will cover centering, throwing, forming and finishing. Finally, we will use texture and glaze to finish our work. Each class will have a fun theme to get us inspired.

Ceramics for Two (Pre-school/Kindergarten)

Have fun and get messy with your little one in their very first ceramics class. Build a cereal bowl, cup, and plate for your own “breakfast set.” Create a keepsake handprint tile. Make simple pinched animals with textures. Roll out clay slabs and cut shapes with cookie cutters to make a mobile. Decorate with glazes, acrylic paints, and even glitter. Sign up early as class is limited to six pairs of children and parent/guardians.
