Have you ever been curious about clay? Want to get your hands into the mud and be creative? Then this class is just for you! Beginners
will learn the fundamentals of pottery: wedging clay, centering the clay on the wheel, and pulling up the clay to make different
forms. The three basic forms to make on the wheel are a mug, plate and bowl. After that, you should feel more comfortable with
exploring different shapes and forms, such as jars, bottles, vases. This class in not limited to wheel throwing either, we will be going
over hand-building as well. Is there a project that you are wanting to make? We can do that too! We will also explore surface design,
how to apply images, patterns, slips and glazes to the clay.

Cost of classes are $145 members, $155 non-members. Enrollment deadline for both classes are August 13 for Session One and September 27 for Session 2. Limited wheel space, 3 students MAX! 3 hand-builders. 6 students max for entire class.

Meet the potters:

Brooke Avery grew up and currently resides in Trinity, NC. Always having a passion for art and creativity, she went on to study art and design at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. It wasn’t until there where she fell in love with clay. After graduating college, she went on to being a full time potter and teaching pottery classes at local art studios. Her background of art and design really shines through on each piece of pottery that is created. Brooke loves teaching and sharing her knowledge of clay with others, that’s why she is currently going back to school to get her Art Education license, so she can teach art in a public school one day. Outside of teaching, making pottery and going to school, Brooke loves to spend time with her friends and family.
