ADULT CLAY WHEEL AND HANDBUILDING CLASSES!
Beginner to Intermediate Level. On Pause Until October 2021
Our Adult Clay Classes operate in 4 week sessions beginning the first week of each month. These are offered on either Tuesdays or Wednesdays once a week, for four weeks. Time is from 4pm - 6pm. The cost breaks down to only $20 per hour, making the class $160 before the purchase of your tools ($15 and yours to keep)!
WHAT DO YOU GET?
Get your hands dirty with a fun and interactive clay class session. All students will end the four weeks with knowledge of wheel throwing and hand building, as well as 6 clay projects! Class sizes are kept small in order to ensure each participant gets enough attention from the instructor. Only 4 students per class! Price includes firing for 6 items which you can bring back to the studio to paint if you choose. The first 3 weeks of the session we focus on teaching you different styles of hand building and wheel throwing. The fourth week you get to trim and clean your items to get them kiln ready!
