"I never knew how many different ways there were to create pots. This class definitely showed me how many possibilities there are."

Throw exquisite and functional bowls on the potter’s wheel, sculpt slabs into expressive forms, explore glazing techniques, and witness your work come to life through gas and electric kiln firings.

In this workshop, you will create collections of work along specific aesthetic themes of your choosing. You will experiment with surface treatments, including the application of glazes, low relief, and three-dimensional decoration to distinguish your work. While beginners are exposed to a range of clay techniques, advanced students work to expand their portfolios.

Through class discussions, collaborative explorations, art books, technical articles, and one-on-one instruction, you will gain a greater understanding of what ceramics is and what inspires you to create.
