Spring 2019— Basic Wheel with Angela Gleeson, W 1:00-3:30, 8 weeks
Basic Wheel classes are for absolute beginners and those who want a refresher. Students will learn basic wheel skills while making lots of funny mistakes and big messes—there’s no way around it. So come make bowls, cups, and vases, from start to finish, and don’t forget to bring a sense of humor. Its just mud, which, through a bit of alchemy you will turn into something useful, cute, beautiful, or hilarious. So fun!
You will need some supplies for this class. To protect our kilns, all clay and commercial glazes must be purchased from our shop. Beginning students should buy the 630 White Stoneware, others may choose from our list online. You can bring your own tools, or buy them from us in our shop the first day of class. Our shop has expanded with a wide range of tools, and mid-range clays and glazes. The price of our clays includes all the firings and the use of our dipping glazes. Commercial glazes are only offered as an option. Special thanks to Baltimore and Richmond Clayworks for their support and help with our shop. The sale of our products helps support the existence of this studio.
