May 4 2023: Introduction to the Potters Wheel with Marilee Schumann

Beginners Wheel Class Description

The class will be held at the Clay Studio from 6 - 8:30 pm on Thursdays, running from May 4th through June 22nd. (8 weeks)

For beginners, continuing beginners, and students who would like a refresher in the basics of the wheel. You will practice the basic forms, bowl, cylinder, and sphere, with an emphasis on function.
