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.
Adult beginners classes will be offered on Mondays or Thursdays (choose one) from 6:30 to 9:30 pm beginning the week of January 13. A class for children ages 9 to 14 will be held on Saturdays from 10 to 12 beginning on January 11.
