This class is a beginning to intermediate wheel throwing class at Wildling Collaborative Arts in Eugene, OR. In this class we will build a strong foundation of basic pottery skills, including centering and making basic forms that can be made into cups, bowls, vases, and plates that you can use! We will discuss, "What makes a good mug?" and practice making and attaching handles. Each class begins with a demo and there will be plenty of time to practice with teacher support.This class is for people with little to no clay experience, or for those that want to tune their skills.
2 bags of clay, glazes, and firing are included in the class price. Tuition also covers access to our Open Studio on Sundays from 10am-4pm to come and practice what you are learning in class.
You are welcome to use the studio tools, but you should come with a basic tool kit (this can be purchased on our website).
