Join professional potter Seth Rainville for this life-changing class. You will no longer wonder what it is like to work on the potter’s wheel, or what it’s like to make your very own pottery! This beginning level class will explore the breadth and depth of ceramics as an art-form. Each student will produce multiple works by the end of the session including, mugs, bowls, and small scale sculpture. Although this is a beginner’s class, some may want to brush up or strengthen their skills from point A. Either way, Seth Rainville’s methods for teaching clay will certainly inspire success in any student!
