Spring Intermediate Wheel: Throwing Bigger
March 10 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm$160.00
Tuesday evenings 8 week class. In this class, students will learn how to throw bigger pots than they might be used to! We will cover a wide variety of forms such as: nesting bowls, narrow necked vases, a large serving dish, cookie jars, and pitchers. Students will be encouraged to throw with a few more pounds of clay than they usually do, and are encouraged to build up gradually. This class is an exploration into how to make large forms that can be incorporated into everyday life. This class is intended for students with a strong basic knowledge of throwing.
Date: Tuesdays, March 10th—April 28th
Instructor: Alex Schmiechen

Bring a small bucket, towel, and pottery tool kit* to class.
Tuition includes: open studio time, 36" shelf space and some firing costs.
*Pottery tool kits as well as additional clay and glass supplies may be purchased at the Ceramics Center.
