About the class

This session is for those who already know how to center and throw pieces successfully! A continuation of our all levels course, this intermediate level course will help you hone your throwing skills through more complex demos, and nuanced approaches to technical throwing. Expand your fundamentals and begin to develop your own voice in this 8 week course with Ben. In addition to throwing, surface decoration techniques will be explored as well as the opportunity to experiment with different clay bodies.  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. Additional bags of clay can be purchased through the studio and/or office.

With your 8 week class registration, students receive the opportunity to purchase a studio pass for ½ off during the duration of their class. Sign ups for membership will be included in your preclass email.

Please share any special considerations (medical, physical, learning) that will help your instructor make your class accessible and accommodating for you. You can share these considerations when register or by emailing Sean at sean@sonomacommunitycenter.org.
