Learn "Step 2" to making hand thrown vessels with professional potters Keren Brown and David Zink. This class will help you take your beginning to intermediate pottery skills and advance quickly into pottery throwing that caters to your interests.
Subjects covered in Step 2 pottery include ( but are not limited to) throwing consistent and intentionally shaped vessels, centering larger volumes of clay, and basic two-part pieces such as handled mugs, bowls, and dish ware. We will also touch on the basics of altered forms.
FEE: $88 covers wheel and tool use during open all open-hours, and 4 class sessions. You'll need to purchase one 25 lb bag of clay on the opening day of class (available at Mondaes) and Step 2 Students often prefer to purchase their own tool kit, but tools are also available for use.
Step 2 students may choose to keep and glaze up to 20 pots with no size limit, and qualify for 50% off firing fees for additional pots. Most Step 2 Students do not throw and finish more than 20 pots per month.
SKILL LEVEL: Students need to be able to center clay at the wheel without instruction, and be able to throw a balanced cylinder prior to enrolling in Step 2. Our Intro to Pottery Class is a great way to get your hands back in the clay if you need a refresher.
