MONDAY 6:30 – 9:00 PM I APR 12 – MAY 17 (6 WEEKS)
BEGINNER/ADVANCED with Beth Lindenberger – This class is perfect for those who want to focus on learning or improving their ability to throw pots on the wheel. Maybe you need to start from the beginning with instruction, or just get a chance to improve your technique. For beginners, basic techniques for centering the clay, and throwing cylinders and cups will be demonstrated and practiced. Or maybe you need to refresh your skills, refine forms and explore more complex shapes. Emphasis will be on making and completing projects, with glazing and firing included. Instruction will focus on the level of each student in this small class. Clay must be purchased at CVAC on or before the first class, $18.00 per 25lbs. Students should bring a towel, and an apron is suggested. M $100 NM $115
*Because this class is a short, skill based, intensive learning course, please consider taking it at another time if you know that you will not be available for every class.
