Fall 2019—Session 1-Throwing for the Hopelessly Inept, Julie Madden, Th 6:00-8:30, 6 weeks
It's just mud, and it can be a lot of fun even when nothing seems to work. Everyone who has become a potter has done everything you will do in this class from having your clay fly off the wheel to trimming a hole right in the bottom of the best pot you ever made. Yep, gotta pay your dues. You won't make that dreamy set of dishes in your first 8-week class, but you might come away with a couple of sweet mugs and a lot of pots for spare change and olive oil. Baby steps. Wear your most comfy clothes, leave your jewelry home, your hair pulled back, and don't forget your sense of humor—its just mud.
You will need some supplies for this class. To protect our kilns, all clay and commercial glazes must be purchased from our shop. The price of our clays includes all the firings and the use of our dipping glazes. Commercial glazes are only offered as an option. Beginning students should buy the 630 White Stoneware. New students may use our studio tools or buy a beginner kit.
