Intermediate Throwing with Ron Dean
January 13 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Aimed at those who have mastered the basics of throwing on the pottery wheel, this 8-week class aims to help you take your skills to the next level. Instructor Ron Dean will help you to improve your wheel throwing technique while also fostering your personal style. The class will involve lots of explanation, demonstrations and hand-on practice. The atmosphere is relaxed and friendly and Ron’s teaching method is one of learning a process rather than getting too precious about the end result.
Mondays, Jan 13–Mar 2
8 classes, in the McGraw Ceramics Studio
$396 / $336 members
