This 8 week course will provide you time on the wheel to challenge your skills and level up your technique when throwing!. This course is open to students who have thrown on the wheel before but are still learning. Bri will demonstrate a variety of techniques on how to use the Wheel as a tool. We will focus on creating surfaces through form and how to create dynamic thrown objects. This course will offer you time to develop an artistic voice when working on the pottery wheel! Join us to discuss ideas of contemporary functional work along with the support and guidance from the instructor for your projects.

Instructor and Studio Coordinator
Bri Shimer is Sonoma Ceramic’s Studio Coordinator and holds an MFA from University in North Texas in Ceramics. She focuses her work on creating utilitarian objects with a balance of intuitive process and an emphasis on material exploration. She strives to blend expressions of the natural world and the human experience into functional ceramic wares. The evidence of the hand is a component of her aesthetic, whether it is an active mark on the surface to create form or how the user interacts with the piece.
