Beginning Wheel Class

Monday, Aug 19, 2019 at 5:30pm

Common Street Arts
10 Water Street, Suite 106
Waterville, ME 04901


This six-week pottery class will teach students the basics of throwing clay on the wheel. The class will start with clay basics and expand to creating mugs, bowls, plates, and other objects based on student interest. Skills that will be developed include centering, shaping, trimming, handle making, and decoration and glazing. The instructor will work actively with each student as they navigate all the basic aspects of wheel throwing.

Included in the class is a 25 pound bag of clay, all glazes needed, and kiln firings during the class period. Also, each student can come to use the studio outside of class from 6am until 8pm on weekdays and from 9am until 5pm on weekends. ( Occasionally there will be a class using the wheels on specific nights which will be posted on our calendar in the studio space.)

No experience necessary. Registration required. $175

Limit: 7 students
