Join us in Saranac Lake at the North Country Community College Clay Studio this summer for this short, 4-week pottery class. We’ll get our hands dirty and learn new things on the wheel! This fun class guides the beginner through the basic steps on the wheel. For more advanced students, Hedy will teach new tips and techniques for making bowls and lidded pottery such as jars, crocks, and even tea pots. 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.
Beginners who have never worked with clay may wish to take the first course, Wheel Throwing, starting on June 26th. Please note that make-up days are not available for missed classes.
$125 including materials and firings | 4 sessions + 4 Saturday open studio days
