Start by using methods of wedging, centering, hand and finger positioning for raising a vessel, and positioning one’s body for dealing with a mass of clay on the wheel. Demonstrations will cover the importance of trimming techniques and various forming processes. Wear clothes that can get dirty. Pottery tool kits are available for sale in the studio for $26. Cash or check only. Firing fees are $2.75/pound. Cash or check only. Includes one 3-hour weekly practice session during monitored practice hours on a first-come, first-served basis.
