May Wednesday Throwing Lab
Event Dates and Times:
May 10 (6:00 pm - 9:00 pm) - May 31
Join us in our new Atrium Studio to practice and hone your throwing skills!
You’ll have access to our Atrium studio, potter’s wheels, throwing tools, and clay during the Throwing Lab. This program focuses on the throwing process – each week, you can come to throw or trim your pieces. All finished work will be bisque fired, but not glaze fired. Anyone wishing to glaze and finish their pieces may do so during a registered class or Open Studio. Throwing Lab is recommended for those familiar with the ceramic process, who don’t require hands-on instruction, and who feel confident working independently. A monitor will be present to assist with orientation to the studio.
Each Throwing Lab series will run for four weeks. Clay and bisque firing are included in the monthly fee. You may use up to 12 pounds of clay (Standard’s 306 brown stoneware) each week. No outside clay permitted.
After your series is complete, we will discard work left in the studio at any stage (green, bisque, or glaze fired).
Participants must be 16+ or accompanied by an adult.
Throwing Lab registration sales are final. Attendees must follow all current Visitor Guidelines.
Please arrive on time. If you arrive more than one hour after the start of the session, the doors will be locked, and you will be unable to enter the building. Arriving more than one hour after the beginning of the session forfeits your spot, and you will not receive a refund.
If a class or workshop is sold out, you may request to be added to the waitlist by emailing [email protected].
