Foundations of Wheel Throwing
Weekly Event - Every Tuesday: 7:30 PM to 9:30 PM
San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
Description: This 8-week introductory course exposes students to key ceramic and wheel throwing principles, vocabulary and techniques. Central to the course is a "learn by doing" approach and sensitivity toward creativity and fun. Students are responsible for throwing and designing an actual cup (or shot glass), bowl, plate and vase if you've got mad skills. Students are introduced to the central concepts of wedging, centering, throwing, trimming and glazing. In addition, they learn how wheel throwing is used as a meditative art to manage and control stress levels. Class meets once a week for eight weeks with a two hour class each weel and the studio fee gives students unlimited access to glaze and clay for the semester.
Note: When signing up for this event just sign-up for the first class of the semester and you will automatically be signed up for every subsequent class after that.
