Robbie Breaux
Mondays 6:30-9:30pm, Nov. 6 – Dec. 18
Tuesdays 1-4pm, Nov. 7 – Dec. 19
This class is for both beginner and intermediate students. Beginners focus on simple forms—bowls, mugs with handles, glazes, and glazing techniques. Intermediates receive instruction on techniques they want to hone, such as lidded vessels, plates, or stacked forms. Throughout the session, students are introduced to different surface designs to enhance one’s work. Emphasis is on what you want to know more about!

Escape into the world of clay. Students learn the basics of hand-building, then dive into the skills needed to throw fundamental forms which have been used through the ages. At times Gary will provide pre-thrown pots for students to practice glazing. Come relax and tap into your right brain.

Primarily for true beginners. If you have no previous experience in ceramics, or if it’s been years since you were last in the studio, you’ll fit right in. Intermediate students can expect to work more independently if registered for this section of Fundamentals. We’ll cover the foundational techniques of wheel-throwing and hand-building.
