Pottery and Wheel-Throwing
Section 01 is designed for beginning students who are interested in a survey of ceramic techniques. You will learn a variety of handbuilding methods, while also being introduced to the pottery wheel. Our guided projects will range from functional objects to whimsical sculpture. You'll learn about applying dozens of decorative accents, and be given the freedom to explore your own self-expression. In Section 02, for returning students or those with ceramics experience, the instructor will troubleshoot skills needing improvement, lead class exercises, demonstrate advanced techniques, and provide inspiration for further exploration. Tools will be available for use during class; if you would like your own, toolkits can be purchased for $17 from the BA&CE office on the first night of class. A $45 materials fee is included in the course fee.
