The 550 is offering a wonderful opportunity to learn basic pottery, at a great price in the new year. Sabrina is offering a beginners 6 week class, for both adults and children.
The instructor will demonstrate centering, pulling up walls, trimming and glazing, among other rudimentary skills of throwing. The basic goal of this class is to educate each student on the ceramic process and work on improving their skills and techniques.
Class sizes are small (6 students max) meaning that each student will get plenty of one on one assistance with the instructor.
