|Meets:||F from 10:00 AM to 1:00 PM|
|Location:||25 Sagamore Road Wheelthrowing|
There are 2 openings remaining at this time.
Building on the core skills introduced in Wheel I, the Wheel 1.5: The Next Steps strengthens the skills of wheel working while introducing the student to more forms and techniques on the potter's wheel. Decoration and glazing will be explored in greater detail, while the student gains greater confidence and control in their overall pottery making. Recommended for anyone who has taken Wheel 1 two times or more, and great stepping stone on to Wheel II: How to Make Better Pots.
