Intro to Pottery: Centering and Throwing


Thursdays, 6-8pm

Instructor:  Hedy Yang

Learning to throw on the potter’s wheel is one thing on everyone’s “bucket list.”  This is your chance.  This fun class guides the beginner through basic ceramics: working with clay, the centering process, pulling cylinders, and creating functional ware on the wheel.  We will be learning basic glazing techniques, as well as the bisque and glaze firing processes.  Each participant will take home finished functional wares, glazed and fired in the electric kiln.  

$185 including materials and firings | 6 sessions + 5 Saturday open studio days

Min. 2, max 6

Hedy Yang has a passion for clay. She started taking ceramics in high school to fulfill a class requirement, and ended up falling in love with it. Hedy recently graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Ceramics at Michigan State University, and a minor in Entrepreneurship and Innovation. Over the last few years, she’s worked hard to create content for social media that shows her process and the videos have been shared by several major social media outlets such as InsiderArt, Buzzfeed, Elle Decor, and many others. Hedy is a winter artist-in-residence at Craigardan and has received this winter’s Studio Teaching Fellowship.
