Thursday Daytime, January 17 to February 21, 12:30 to 3:00 pm 

Cost:  $180.00 plus $35.00 for clay (20 lb bag) — 4 students to a class (a $50 deposit is required to hold your space)

Beginners classes are limited to 4 students.  That’s all we have room for!

Intermediate/Advanced Students 

Saturday Mornings, January 19 to February 23, 10:00 am to 12:30 pm

Intermediate/Advanced students can work on the wheel or continue on with more complicated hand-building. This class is limited to 4 participants.   You can bring your own tools, or use mine, but you have to use the clay sold through my studio and our glazes or glazes that have been approved for my kiln.  It is not a beginners class — you should know how to centre and throw a good cylinder.

There will be space for 2 throwers and 2 hand-builders.  

Cost:  $195.00 plus $35.00 for clay (20 lb bag) (a $50 deposit is required to hold your space)

DETAILS!

HAND-BUILDING:

What will you do in a beginners hand-building class?  
We will start off with pinch pots to make small bowls, then move onto coiling and larger pieces, and finish off with slab work.  You will end up with finished pieces worthy of gift giving!

What should you wear?
Old clothes.  The clay doesn’t stain and can be washed out, but you’re better off wearing something you don’t mind getting dirty.

What should you bring?
If the weather is sloppy, you’ll need shoes for the studio.  It’s a good idea to bring an old towel, and some people like an apron.  I will provide all of the tools you’ll need to work with the clay.

THROWING:

What will you do in a beginners throwing class?  
Most of the time will be dedicated to learning how to center the clay — and from there we will be making cylinders, which we will turn into small serving dishes and cups.  Once you have the basic technique down we will continue onto more complex forms.
