Winter 2019— Basic Wheel with Patrick Gibson, Fridays 12:00-2:30
Basic classes are for absolute beginners and anyone who wants to start from the very beginning. Students will use slabs to make pots, cups, pitchers, and trays. Surface design techniques like water etching, stamping, and glazing will be covered.
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.
