Beginner Pottery Classes

beginner pottery classes

Next Session starts on Nov. 6TH!

The November session will be 10 weeks long. There will be "no classes" the week of Thanksgiving and Christmas, so not to conflict with the holidays.

Beginner pottery classes are our specialty at Park West Ceramics! Beginners will focus on the fundamentals of wheel throwing. You will learn centering, opening & raising walls as well as trimming. Creating lids, pulling handles and surface embellishment will be covered as well. Students will learn how to glaze their pieces which will take place during the 8th and final week. Students are allowed to make up any missed beginner pottery classes. You can choose between morning beginner pottery classes or night beginner pottery classes. Take a look below for available mornings and nights.

Open Studio (included):
In addition to our weekly class, attending open studio on Saturdays is critical to student development. The student who attends open studio on Saturdays in addition to their weekday class will achieve a higher skill level than the student who only comes once a week. We highly encourage our students to attend open studio on Saturdays and reach their highest potential and achieve creative satisfaction. Students who are registered in the Saturday morning class can attend classes during the week nights in addition to their Saturday morning class. This will allow Saturday students to have that twice a week experience that our week night students have.
