Pottery Classes

 
Designed to Your Interests  

 

Our pottery classes are loosely structured and follow an open format. This is the simplest way to take into account the students interests. We usually start by learning to center and throw a cylinder. Next, we work on making a bowl. We will cover wedging, trimming and glazing. Ceramics is a vast subject. We love talking pottery if you are interested.

Learning to throw pottery on a wheel can be a challange. You must teach your hands to control the clay. As simple as it seems, there is a lot going on. It requires focus and concentration. You learn from your mistakes, move forward and things start to come together. Then, it is like magic as you spin something beautiful from a lump of clay.

Handbuilding pottery is creative fun. It is versitile because there are so many different shapes you can make with clay. The studio space is clean and well lit. We have large tables to work on and plenty of shelf space to store your work on.

LampLight Studio is a fully equiped pottery studio. The studio space is clean and well lit. You have access to everything you would expect in a fully equiped pottery studio: ten Brent pottery wheels ,slab roller, extruder, wedging table, two great sinks for cleanup, dry box, wet box, giffen grip, stamps, different tools for shaping your work and plenty of shelf space to store your work on.

Friday Morning Handbuilding Class

 

 

The process is easy, but can also be tricky. Moisture level of the clay plays an important role. Care must be given to attach the parts correctly. We focus on giving an understanding of the fundimentals required to make your piece successful. Our pottery classes are loosely structured and follow an open format. This is the simplest way to take into account the students interests. We usually start with slab building using one of our many of hump, slump or press molds. After we explain some of the possibilities, we open the direction up to the student and provide guidence along the way.Clay is a versitile medium to sculpt with. Handbuilding pottery includes many different techniques for manipulating the clay.

Classes are run on an ongoing, rotating basis. You can start at any time as there are no start/end dates. You are free to skip dates if you need to.
