6 week Beginning Pottery Classes
550 Gallery Studios offers 6 week Beginning Pottery classes for those who have never worked on a pottery wheel or who just want to brush up on their skills. Students who know the basics but prefer to continue working with an instructor are also welcome.
Each class meets once a week for 2½ hours to teach the basics of wheel thrown pottery: wedging, centering, pulling, trimming, glazing, and basic studio etiquette. Our Wednesday afternoon, 8 week classes also cover basic hand-building instruction. Included in the cost is everything you need while you are in class*: basic pottery tools, buckets, and towels, (Ask Dick)25 lbs. of clay, 1 free square of glaze firing, and open studio time during our office hours to practice what you are learning.
