The focus of this class is to introduce and practice the basics of wheel-throwing including, but not limited to, throwing cylinders, bowls and plates, trimming, and adding handles. Plus you’ll learn about glazes and glazing techniques to decorate your clay piece and have a spectacular finished piece of artwork!

Handles and knobs make even the most traditional pieces personal and unique. You’ll learn how to make handles beyond the traditional pulled option, and knobs that add interest to boxes, lids or footed vessels, and are appropriate for hand-built or thrown pieces. You’ll begin by watching a demonstration of the different handles and knobs, then dive in hands-first to try the techniques yourself, making a cup and box to which the new handles and knobs can be added. All materials are included.
