What you'll learn in this pottery wheel class:

Our classes combine students of varying skill levels. We find that this helps both the less skilled students, who learn from the more advanced students (as well as the teacher), and helps the more advanced students to articulate what, how and why they do what they do.

Beginners, will receive an introduction to basic throwing techniques: centering clay, forming cylinders, bowls and plate forms. Glazing and surface treatment also covered.

For those who are comfortable throwing basic cylinder and bowl shapes, classes will focus on constructing more complex forms. Teapots, pitchers, covered jars, casseroles etc. will be explored. Students also work on mastering the more technical aspects of glazing and firing. Advanced students are, also, eligible for ADVANCED TOPIC seminars as they are offered. 

A beginner's tool kit, for the wheel classes, is available through us ($25), or can be purchased at some Art supply stores. 

 Students should wear clothes that can get messy, including their shoes. Also, a hand towel is always nice to have.

Refund Policy
As long as you notify us one full week before the first class meeting, you can get a refund, minus a $40 processing fee. Not attending class does not constitute an official drop out. 

After the first class date, no refunds are available but you may be able to get a full or partial store credit towards another session. 

We can only refund you if you drop out due to a documented medical emergency that prevents you from attending several class sessions.

Policy concerning missed classes:
  • Classes missed due conflicts in the students schedule are not our responsibility.
  • If a student must miss a class, they are able to make that class up by attending a class of a similar kind, if available, during the same enrollment session.
  • If, for any reason, Terra Incognito must cancel a class, a new class will be rescheduled at the convenience of the majority of the class members.
