Independent Wheel TUESDAYS, Jan 31 – March 21
6:00PM – 9:00PM

Instructor:  Ben Betourne

Location: RM 117

*Intermediate and Advanced Students**

This course is designed for students who have taken at least one or more wheel throwing classes at the center and are looking to begin exploring their own projects while continuing to receive one on on support. In this course, students will be able to work independently on projects of their choosing along with learning new skillsets via demonstrations and example by instructor Ben. This course is a great opportunity for those who are testing the waters of our open studio program, but would like to maintain consistent guidance.

Sonoma Ceramics is excited to roll out new sliding scale, accessible pricing for our classes. With this new payment option, materials for the course are now included in the price of the class. Course price includes a single 25 lb. bag of clay, and glazing and firing for said clay.
