Introduction to Wheel Throwing with Erin Ratke (Ceramics) (11-16 year olds)

November 2 @ 5:00 pm - December 14 @ 7:00 pm

Introduction to Wheel Throwing with Erin Ratke (Ceramics)

6 Mondays (November 2-December 14. No class the week of November 23) from 5-7 pm
$135 for CAE Members / $150 for non-members (this fee covers all supplies for all six class sessions.)

Potters have been throwing on the wheel for at least 5000 years, which makes it one of the longest held traditions still kept by modern craftsmen. Despite its ancient origin and use by what we can assume to be billions of potters over the millennia, every potter’s technique at the wheel is personal, if not unique. To help kids (aged 11-16) start to build their technique, this 6-part class will explore the basic steps of wheel throwing.

  1. centering
  2. drawing up (or out)
  3. shaping

Class size is limited to 4 students. A full list of Covid-19 procedures will be sent upon registration. Please check out our website for a complete list of our Covid-19 reopening policies.
