Beginner Pottery 6 Week Course

Level: Beginner

Instructor:  Various

Our 6-week beginner pottery classes are for those with little to no clay experience who want to learn the proper techniques for creating wheel thrown pottery. Lessons cover wedging, centring, throwing, trimming, and finishing. Focus is on learning to centre the clay and making basic cylinders and bowls – the foundation for making mugs, vases, and other forms. Students will also be introduced to glazing studio and learn basic techniques to get started in the studio. (The 8-week course option offers an additional glazing and wheel class to the 6-week course.) Completing these classes will qualify members to use the clay studio on a drop-in basis where they have the time and space to refine their skills and work on their own projects.

Price includes one bag of clay and a personal clay tool kit. Additional clay is available for purchase at the VCAC front desk.

Note: Students should bring an apron, clear plastic recycling bag and an old towel. Please leave rings, watches, and bracelets at home. Long hair should be tied back. Long nails are not recommended.
