ondaes Step 2 Pottery Class builds the foundation you need to create intentionally thrown pots! Your centering skills from Intro to Pottery will support changing measured amounts of clay with these important lessons in:
- Bowls of 3 types and multiple sizes
- Dessert, Dinner Plates, or Platters
- Cups, Mugs, and Handles of 2 types
- Larger Tall Forms (or "Go Bigger"!) Vessels
Pro-potters Pam Main and David Zink create an easy-going, welcoming atmosphere for all skill levels, and Mondaes students follow suit in this encouraging environment.
Enroll in Step 2 Pottery if you're confident in centering without instruction, or after at least 1-3 of our Intro Class Sessions. Many skill levels enter Step 2, with every student still advancing their basic skills while creating things they love.
FEE: $88-$98 (+$10 June 2021 on) covers 4 class sessions, access to 10 three gallon buckets of Georgie's Cone 6 Glaze, firing up to 20 pots per paid month, and unlimited studio time. Students are given 2 shelves each for clay, tools, and pottery storage.
Unlimited studio time begins on the first day of class attended. Students purchase one 25lb bag of clay ($14-18) and their own tool kit ($19.98) on the opening day of class, available at Mondaes.
Additional firing fees beyond 20 pots are applied per-piece size, and students only pay once to fire both bisque & glaze (1/2 of the public firing rate!). Students usually produce less than 20 pots in Step 2.
SKILL LEVEL: Students need to be confident in centering without group instruction, but can access continued guidance on the basic processes. Please enroll in Intro to Pottery for group instruction on basic pottery making.
CLASS TIMES: Thursdays at 10am-12pm or 6-8pm, 4 classes each monthly session. Please choose the time slot that you will attend the entire month. Students have 2 weeks following their paid session to finish pieces they wish to keep.
