If you are new to the medium of clay or hoping to refresh your knowledge this is a perfect place to start.

This 10 session course will cover the basics of working with clay, surfacing, and glazing. In the first half of the course students will learn the basics of throwing on the wheel, coil building, slab building, and surface decoration. With these new skills students will have time to create there dream piece with help and guidance from their instructor. Each class will consist of a demonstration, discussions of form and ceramic concepts, and a work period.  All skill levels are welcome!

We encourage participants to join in our School’s biennial fundraiser, ‘Ramp It Up!’, in May, 2021, by creating and donating bowls. This event is in support of our important community organization, Second Story Women’s Centre.
