OLD FORGE — Instructor Carol Marie Vossler will be leading a one-week Beginners Approach to the Pottery Wheel workshop on Oct. 11-15 from 1 to 3 p.m. at View, the center for arts and culture.
This is a great introductory class for anyone who wants to try their hand at pottery on a wheel. This one-week, ten-hour “non-judgment” studio class is designed to introduce the “throwing” fundamentals of clay for those who are curious to learn how to form and shape pottery on the wheel. Using a step-by-step approach, artist, and instructor Carol Marie Vossler will teach the fundamental process of how to hold your hands as you manipulate the clay from a ball into your very own piece of pottery.
View’s Pottery and Workshops Manager, Elise Incze, will glaze all pieces after they have been bisque fired. Students can also schedule a time with Elise Incze to glaze any creations after they have been bisque fired. Clay creations will be available for pick up or shipped after drying, bisque firing, and glaze firing (2-3 weeks). The class is $175, $150 for View members.
To register for the workshop or to find out more information, go online to ViewArts.org/workshops/pottery. Pre-registration is required. Deadline to register is Oct. 7.
