Sessions 8
Dates February 3 - March 24 (Tuesday) – 6 - 9pm

Discover throwing on the potter’s wheel to create forms ranging from refined porcelain vessels to rustic teabowls to sculptural objects. We will begin with fundamental elements of centering and making cylinders, cups, bowls, and plates, and continue by exploring form and scale. Finishing surfaces with various methods of carving, joining, and decorating will also be included. Everyone has a unique way of touching clay and this will be an opportunity to get better acquainted with your unique touch while using the wheel. Please bring sketches of forms, decorative patterns or drawings, texturing tools, basic pottery tools, a small bucket, a towel, and plastic to cover work. All experience levels are welcome.

Dates March 7 - 14 (Saturday) – 9am - 5pm

What is a web page and how do I get one? How does a web designer/developer get the website to look the way it does? Join us for a fun and creative approach to understanding web site development, in a non-coding, artistic, and relaxed environment. We will start with the fundamentals of good web design – and learn how the user views your information and social media posts. From there we will try some ‘hands-on’ page design using Adobe Dreamweaver. This class is great for a beginner as well as for the more advanced learner as we’ll also delve into interactivity and marketing.
