Stoneware (Beginner)

Mon Jan 09 to Mar 06, 2023 1:30 pm - 4:30 pm

This 8-week course is designed for beginners who want to learn the fundamentals of making pottery and those looking to reconnect with clay. Working in stoneware, students are exposed to basic hand-building techniques, such as slab, coil, pinch, press moulding, and sculpting. Participants will learn the basics of wheel throwing, where they will centre, open, and pull to create basic cylindrical vessels.

This class also emphasizes surface treatment, encouraging students to experiment with glaze combinations on both functional and sculptural pieces.

Dates: January 9, 16, 23, 30, February 6, 13, 27, March 6 (No class February 20)

Please note: For the stoneware classes, one bag of stoneware clay is provided per student. Additional bags can be purchased for $30 each.
