Pottery on the Wheel for Teens & Adults

How do you work clay on the wheel? Beginners will learn how to use the wheel to create three dimensional forms and vessels. Demonstrations will cover the basics of wedging, centering, pulling, trimming and forming functional vessels. Come and get your hands muddy! If you are accustomed to clay come fine tune your skills, learn a new technique, and challenge yourself with larger more complex forms. Dress for a mess and wear tennis shoes. Come to the first class with ideas, excitement and inspiration. One 25 lbs. bag of clay is included in the course fee; any additional clay can be purchased from the OAC. Basic glazing will be covered to finish pieces. Note that it is sometimes necessary to combine the youth and adult class and therefore the start time for this class will be moved up. You will be notified if that happens! Call instructor at 507-835-1192 or the OAC 507-451-0533 if you have questions specific to this class.
