Class Description

After an introduction to studio protocols, equipment, tools, and safety, this thorough 6-week wheel class is designed to give you all the basics, from wedging clay, centering and making cylinders, to pulling tall forms, lidded vessels, and handles, leaving you with a great foundation for an independent practice. Every class starts with a demo. And later you'll learn how to use slip, underglaze and some glazing techniques. You’ll be notified by email when your pieces are ready, in 3-4 weeks. Note: There is a one week break after week five so we can fire your pieces.

Cancellation Policy

Studio Policies Students are not permitted to load, unload, or operate pottery kilns. Keep hair tied back for safety. Avoid wearing loose articles of clothing or jewelry that could pose hazards. Closed-toe and closed-heel footwear must be worn in the pottery studio. Do not operate any equipment without the presence of an instructor. All completed work must be collected from Ford City Potters within 6 weeks after the final class, once you're notified by email. Work will not be stored after 6 weeks. Students are expected to arrive on time for each class to ensure the smooth running of the session. Late arrivals cannot make up for lost time. For whatever reason, if Ford City Potters must cancel a session or class, students will be notified via email, and a full refund will be issued. Classes must be paid in full upon registering on the website (credit card or PayPal accepted). Classes are non-refundable. Makeup days are only possible only for glazing days, and only if a space is open in another class. Students are expected to maintain a respectful and inclusive environment in the classroom, treating the instructor and fellow participants with courtesy and consideration. Zero tolerance for disruptive or disrespectful behaviour. In other words, be kind at all times.
