Beginning & Intermediate Pottery with Lucy Hamilton - Spring 2020


Registration for SPRING classes begins at noon on December 2.  (*Registration must start on a week day.) 

Getting Started, Getting Better: Throwing & Glazing for All Levels
In this class beginning students will learn the basics of throwing and application of studio glazes (cone 6 only). Experienced students will have the opportunity to improve their throwing skills and glazing techniques for cone 6 firing. Individualized instruction. A notebook is important. A sense of humor is essential. Glazing at cone 6 (included in class fees) is encouraged.  Cone 10 firing for an additional charge. All levels are welcome.

The course fee includes 25 pounds of clay, glazes, and Cone 6 oxidation firings. Cone 10 firing and additional clay are available for a fee.  A variety of clays are available, and clay used in the class must be purchased from the Craft Enrichment Program.

The Craft Enrichment studio is a teaching studio designed for the development and enhancement of skills. It is not for volume production of items or for production of items for commercial sale.  However, the Craft Enrichment Program does encourage participation in the December and May student sales and the Empty Bowls event.
