Description: In this beginning to intermediate course students will learn to explore the wheel-thrown vessel as a hybrid object for functional, sculptural and conceptual means.  

Merging techniques in wheel throwing and hand building, students will develop fundamental skills for handling the material. They will combine this foundation with experiments in assembling multiple pieces, altering dynamic forms and integrating hand built parts. 

Students should expect to alternate between wheel throwing and hand building practices, applying a playful approach to reach beyond the basic cylinder. 

Refund Policy: Refund and transfer requests must be made via mail or in person two weeks prior to start of the class. Registration receipts are required and there is a $50 processing fee for all refunds and transfers.

Makeup class Policy: We try to be as accommodating as possible with scheduling make-up classes, but it is based on availability. Make-ups must be pre-approved by the teacher to ensure the make-up class is the appropriate skill level, and that there is availability in the class.  If we are not able to schedule a make-up class, the student can come in for one day during Open Studio hours.
