Wheel Fun! Classes at Feet of Clay!

Choose between the single session WHEEL FUN! CLASS or the two session CLAY SAMPLER CLASS

The Wheel Fun! Class and the Clay Sampler Class are group wheel throwing classes where you can spend a few hours learning how to throw on the wheel.  This class is for all ages and is a great community activity!  It’s also a fun and supportive time to get your hands dirty!  The class begins with a wheel-throwing demonstration and the remainder of the time is spent practicing on the wheel.  For those with prior experience students can choose to skip the demonstration.  Don’t forget to bring a towel or apron to help with cleanup!

The class emphasizes learning and having fun above all else, as learning the wheel is a unique challenge! Students are not expected to create anything the first time they take the class and all clay is recycled for the next class. However, if you would like Feet of Clay to fire and glaze the pot(s) you make during class, the cost is $15 per pot, available to purchase at checkout, or during class itself.  All class pieces are glazed white.  Pickup times for fired and glazed pots are within class times at Feet of Clay.  If you would like to finish and glaze your own work, please look into our Clay Sampler class, which is two sessions long.

COVID guidelines:  Classes are limited to 8 people.  Masks are required to be worn the entirety of the class.  Proof of vaccination status is required in order to register.

Instructors:  Katy McNamara and Leslie Potter

ADULT MULTI-SESSION CLASSES

There is currently no open registration for adult multi-session classes.  If you are interested in our multi-week adult classes, please add yourself to the waiting lists below.  Rather than letting the space open up to the public for first come/first serve, we invite people who have been on the waiting lists the longest to join.

COVID guidelines:  Classes are limited to 8 people.  Masks are required to be worn the entirety of the class.  Proof of vaccination status is required in order to register.

Adult classes run for multiple sessions and usually are 5-7 weeks long. The classes are sold in a set, and you come to the class the same day and time every week. They include group instruction, clay, glazes, and firing. The class fee covers 3 hours of instruction per week and all materials, but no open studio time.  The All Levels classes cover basic wheel-throwing and hand-building techniques.  They also allow intermediate students the opportunity to pursue their own interests. We frequently have a mix of beginner and intermediate students in our classes, because so many of our students return to the same class.

Please note that all classes are non-refundable after two weeks before the start date. Classes are limited to 8 students to maximize personal attention.

Cost:  $325 for a 6 week class, $380 for a 7 week class

Instructors:  Richard Gilson, Benjamin Provo, Christine Shadic, Michelle Stolzoff, Tim Wallace
