Ceramics: Wheel Throwing Intensive
Whether you are new to wheel throwing or have a bit of experience, the best way to move your throwing skills along is to work every day on the wheel with great instruction. Watch your ceramics skills quickly improve in this supportive and convivial environment. The last day of class will be for glazing. Each participant will receive one free pass to an open studio session to complete glazing.
