Learn pottery from start to finish in this six week pottery wheel throwing course in Manhattan

6 x 2 hours Class size 1 to 10     label $450
If you're curious about pottery making and want a more in-depth course on the process from beginning to end, then this NYC ceramics course is for you. It's a chance for you to try your hand at the potter's wheel, with no experience necessary (unless you join our intermediate Monday night classes).
Throughout this hands-on pottery course, you'll meet for six consecutive weeks. See below our detailed course outline so you know what to expect each week.
Course Outline:
Week One: Potter's Wheel Basics
Learn the basics of wheel throwing, including how to make simple forms on the pottery wheel. Then, your instructor will guide you as you try it yourself. You'll be able to try and try again until you get a piece (or more) that you like.
Weeks Two to Four: Wheel Throwing Techniques
Continue honing your skills on the wheel. Coning, centering, and pulling walls, as well as shaping pottery and attaching handles, will all be discussed and demonstrated.
Week Five: Trimming
We will trim the works from the course that are your favorites by turning them upside down on the potter's wheel. You will also be able to sponge your works to a smooth finish and further refine and decorate.
Week Six: Glazing
In the last class, you'll learn glazing, which is how you decorate and add color to your pottery by painting or dipping in a liquid glass suspension. Various colors and surfaces are possible. The ceramics that you create will be ready to be picked up one week after the last class.
This unique pottery course is great for those who want to experience clay and have their hand in every part of the wheel throwing process from start to finish, allowing the student to be exposed to all the stages of firing and finishing. If you're interested in learning a new and fun hobby, pottery will allow you to dig your hands into clay, unwind, and create unique handmade ceramic goods!
