Over 4 classes, you will learn basic throwing techniques and will be guided through the process of how to create work on the wheel from start to finish. If you are brand new to clay and still struggle with centering or throwing a cylinder, this class is for you! Registration includes tools, 25 lbs of clay, glaze, and firing.

Week 1: Making Cylinders

Week 2: Trimming / Surface Treatment / Handling

Week 3: Continuation of Making and Trimming

Notes: The Arts for Lawrence Visual Arts Center is located on the Fort Ben Cultural Campus. Off of 56th Street, you will turn North on Post Road. When you get to the stop sign on Otis, continue North and it's the second building on your left. It's a 2-story brick building with teal doors. The class is in the basement.
