Beginner Pottery Class

Wednesdays with Kerri Zeimann
Welcome! In this eight-week class you will learn the basics of how to make objects out of clay. The clay that we use in this class is midrange stoneware, fired to Cone 6 (~2230 degrees Fahrenheit). We will learn several techniques on shaping the clay. Together we will explore some hand-building techniques but most of the emphasis will be exploring wheel throwing and learning how to make basic radially symmetrical shapes.

Throughout the coming weeks you will familiarize yourself with this material and develop a “relationship” with it. Learning how to work with clay can be as equally frustrating as it is rewarding. The more time you spend working and being attentive to the clay, the more you will understand it as a material. The more you understand the material, the tools, and the processes we use to manipulate it, the easier it will be to mold it to your desired end result.

All and all, we are here to enjoy ourselves, to enjoy one another’s company, to enjoy the many processes that can be done with this material, and to have a glass of wine here and there.
