Intro to Wheel Throwing

Instruction will include students’ skills in the areas of general properties of clay, throwing on the wheel and glazing. The objective is not to make pieces to take home, rather allowing you to get your hands dirty and feel what it's like! No previous experience in clay is needed for this class. (an introduction class is a prerequisite for instructional open studio)
