Pottery - Beginners & Improvers
A variety of methods of teaching will be used to show you the essentials in pottery. You will learn how to make a pinch and coil pot, and make a pot using the slab construction method. You will also be shown the technique of throwing a pot and how to decorate them using slips, as well as how to glaze a finished product.

This class is a relaxing environment where you will learn how to create your own pots which you can then take home.
