Beginning Pottery on the Wheel for Teens and 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! 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 with the class; 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 beginning adults into one class and therefore the start time for class could be moved up. You will be notified if that happens! Call instructor at 507-835-1192 if you have questions.
