Perfect for beginners as well as those with previous experience, classes are taught by professional Island potters and are designed to be fun as well as educational. Classes are small in size (a maximum of 8) and relaxed and informal in style. The class covers the basics of clay preparation, wheel-throwing techniques, and glazing and decoration. Hand-building techniques can also be explored depending on interest. A great way to relieve stress and enhance creativity while learning a new skill, participants will have the opportunity to create their own pieces from start to finish.
Openings for adult beginners classes are available on Tuesdays or Thursdays from 6:30 to 9:30 pm beginning the week of January 8. Classes for children ages 9 to 14 will be held on Saturdays from 10:00-12:00 beginning on January 6. If there is enough interest another class will be offered from 1 to 3 pm. All classes run for a 10 week period. The registration fee for an adult class is $225 (price includes a 20lb block of clay) and for a children's class is $175.
NOTE: The registration link will be available in a separate post that will become visible on this site as of Monday December 11th, 2017 at 9am.
