Fired Earth Pottery’s Fall classes are full.

Fired Earth Pottery classes are geared towards small class sizes with individualized instruction. Absolute beginners and experienced potters are all welcome. This 8-week course will be an introduction to hand-building and wheel-thrown ceramics. The class will cover the basics of the pottery process for beginners and allow for the assistance of those who come with experience. You will start with slab cups, develop the foundation of wedging, and create forms on the pottery wheel. In week 7 you will glaze all of your work and in week 8 you will pick up your finished pieces.
