CLASSES

 

For adults and adolescents (from age 13)

Carole Youngner teaching

Learn to create with clay, turning it into functional and sculptural pieces.

I teach wheel-throwing and handbuilding and offer instruction for all levels of experience. Classes are informal and are kept small to guarantee a wheel and space for every student and to make sure that I have time to help everyone.

Beginners get grounding in pottery fundamentals. For electric wheel throwing, they learn how to center a mound of clay, how to throw, and trim their pots. Generally, after one 10-week session, they can make mugs, bowls, and other basic forms. Those doing hand building learn basic techniques such as coiling, slabs and pinching. Everyone learns to glaze and decorate their work.

Intermediate and advanced students refine their skills. Wheel workers learn how to make larger and more complex forms, and explore methods for altering thrown pots. Hand builders may move on to sculpture and working with volume. They may also explore glaze development and alternative firing techniques.

Since making pots requires many stages from conception through firing, it is necessary to follow courses on a quareterly basis.
