8 Week Pottery Course
We offer weekly pottery classes in Seattle in eight week blocks. Each class session is three hours long. During a typical eight week block you can expect to practice throwing on the wheel and hand building as well as different glaze techniques and types of firing. You will end the 8 weeks with a cool new skill and some pottery you made yourself! Classes are small, only four students, and are appropriate for students with a range of experience and skill with ceramics. Rather than having a set curriculum, we work on specific skills that we think are important to acquire when learning to make pottery. Our approach allows every student to move at their own pace. We also encourage students to research, sketch, take notes, and look at the work of other artists; and we will adapt our lessons to fit students' interests. Classes are currently offered on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday Evenings from 6:30 - 9:30PM and on Wednesday mornings from 9:30AM - 12:30PM.
