Wheel Fundamentals

Wheel Fundamentals

Presented by The Umbrella Arts Center at The Umbrella Arts Center

This course is designed for those who would like a basic understanding of the fundamentals of wheel throwing as well as for those with experience who want to build new skills and strengthen their technique. This class will cover many technical and aesthetic concerns of working with clay. Demonstrations and projects will be made accessible for new students and scalable for those with more experience.

Beginners will be introduced to clay by learning the fundamentals of working on a potter’s wheel as well as hand building techniques.

More advanced students will be offered more specific projects and challenges. They will also have the option to develop their own projects and goals to concentrate on during the semester.
