Wheel Throwing (B) – Two-week class (Ages 12-14)
Learn the basics of wheel throwing, trimming and glazing. This extended, two-week class offers more time to practice on the wheel and more opportunities to complete projects. Create handmade functional pottery, experiment with various glazes and learn about safety in the ceramics studio.
- This is a two-week class and students must come to both weeks. Students may take walking field trips so need permission to do so. Students will use clay that needs to be fired and picked up at a later date.
This is an On-site course. Students must follow current CDC + VDH guidance outlined on our website: visarts.org
