Stacy will be teaching Introductory Wheel Throwing at Touchstone from July 30-August 3, 2018. In this workshop, students will learn the basic process of throwing, shaping, and trimming pottery on the wheel. Explore clay as a medium through creating a variety of forms, including bowls, cups, mugs, and more. You may also learn some decorating and altering techniques. This class is perfect for beginners with little or no experience and also for students wanting to further develop their throwing skills.
