Wednesdays, September 23, 2020 – October 28, 2020
9:00am – 1:00pm

Throwing clay! What could be more fun on a Wednesday morning!

We will be using the potter’s wheel in this class with a focus on functional thrown forms. There will be a shift to more complicated thrown pieces, as well as, assembling multiple forms together. Discussions & demonstrations will help lead the way through the weeks. Different surface design techniques and glazing will be explored. Previous wheel throwing experience is required.

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.

$350.00

Students should bring:

  • Apron
  • Hand towel

This class consists of 5 working sessions (Sept. 23 to Oct. 21, 9:00a.m. – 1:00p.m.) with a pick up day on the 6th week (Oct. 28, 9:00a.m. – 10:00a.m.).
