Beginner Wheel Level 1 is an introductory course on clay and the potters’ wheel. Students learn basic clay preparation, throwing and glazing techniques used to make pots from start to finish. One week is set aside to explore handbuilding techniques using the slabroller and the extruder. Students are encouraged to use the studio for practice during their six weeks of instruction and four weeks of studio time. Typical throwing projects include cylinders (mugs, jugs, vases, etc.) and bowls.
