This class is designed to help students with a basic foundation advance to the next level. Students will further explore both handbuilding and wheel-throwing methods. The basic cylinder, bowl and plate forms are built upon to create more complex pieces. Advanced surface design, glazing and firing methods are also introduced.

Advanced Explorations in Ceramics 

Eight-Week Class
