    This introductory class focuses on wheel throwing and basic glazing. It is perfect for a group of friends, family, couples or even by yourself (you will make friends in this class, I promise). In this class, you will be learning the basics of forming a ball of clay into a beautiful vase, cup, mug, bowl, or plate using an electric potter's wheel. If you’re feeling especially inspired to take on more… how about a bird feeder or planter!?! The possibilities are endless with pottery.

    This class has an extended format, meeting six sessions instead of four and allowing almost a doubling of productive class time. 

    Materials will be provided. Additionally, the items you create go home with you to share with your friends and family. All items made are food, dishwasher, and microwave safe.

    Class will be six sessions, and the cost includes a $25 materials fee.

    Note: Please trim your nails down. Longer nails make throwing on the wheel very difficult.

    See you all in class! Feel free to share with friends and families.

    Beginning Woodshop runs for 3 sessions of 4 hours and assumes no previous woodworking experience.  The goal is to train students in the basic use and safety aspects of the major tools in the woodshop.  


    Students should plan to attend all three classes.
      

    The first meeting will cover  basic safety and project selection.  The second and third sessions will be devoted to a project that will reinforce the skills learned on day 1.  We will be using many of the tools we practiced on, as well as some layout and marking skills, to build a small project that you will be able to take home and be proud of!

    Attendees do not need to be members of Ideaworks. However, upon completion of the class, members will be certified to use the covered woodshop tools unsupervised during business hours.

    So, come make some sawdust!
