Prospective students across skill levels are invited to join our Adult Ceramics course, in which burgeoning potters are introduced to the foundations of the medium—from using a pottery wheel to handsculpting and glazing—and intermediate students can take rudimentary practices to the next level by learning how to form handles, lids, spouts, and other finishing touches that elevate basic vessel forms. Advanced participants have the opportunity to customize their instructional experience based upon their interests and abilities. All levels welcome.
