Ceramics: Beginner and Intermediate

  • Water Street Studios 160 S. Water St. Batavia United States (map)

Whether it's the first time you've touched clay or you are a clay artist, our classes and maker-space opportunities will help you grow in your artistic journey.

Ceramics: Beginner and Intermediate - Age 16+

Learn how to create wheel thrown ceramics in this 7-week course designed for both beginner and intermediate clay artists. The basics of handling clay are introduced with a hand building project to allow students to explore this new material. Quickly moving to the wheel, we will be creating cylinder and bowl forms and potentially adding attachments, such as handles for mugs. Glazing and firing is included in the course, which will transform your pots into functional art. Intermediate students will be given more options for learning upper level techniques. 

  • Ages 16 - adult
