Description: Over the course of 6 weeks we will meet in the studio to explore the fundamentals of throwing on the potter’s wheel. From the basics of wedging and centering, to throwing vessels and learning how to glaze them, we will provide you with the tools you need to launch your own ceramic endeavors! Experienced thrower and instructor Gaby Mandelik will teach you to focus on both the process and the product while progressing your skills each week.
Students will be encouraged to explore projects to push their newly learned skills with the support of an encouraging teacher. There will be an optional open studio block available for students who want some independent working time to hone their skills. Age 18+.

This will allow new prospective students a spot to enroll in Introduction classes while simultaneously encouraging seasoned students the opportunity to expand their development by taking themed classes.
