About the class

In this class, students will explore the technical side of throwing through learning how to consistently throw multiples of a single form. Designed for improving and intermediate throwers, this course is an imperative stepping stone for anybody seeking to gain better control at the wheel. 

Amy has years of experience as a potter making product to sell wholesale, an industry where consistency in multiples is imperative. At the end of this 8 week course, students will be able to comfortably sit down at the wheel and throw sets of their favorite form.

This course will include demos, exercises, and utilize a variety of methods to achieve the desired goal for each student. 

When you register for a class, you’ll be offered three price tiers. The middle tier comes closest to what our registration fees used to be, and covers about 50% of the full cost of your participation in the class – with the other 50% covered by community donations. The first tier creates accessibility for people with limited income, while the third tier covers the full cost of participation – so that we can use community donations to support other people’s registration costs. When you choose to register at the third tier, you directly help support the Center’s efforts to remove financial barriers for others.

The Sonoma Community Center (the Center) strives to create an inclusive, safe community where everyone is treated with dignity and respect. The Center is committed to creating such an environment because it brings out the fullest potential in each of us, which, in turn, contributes directly to creating a community of belonging. In order to ensure a positive, safe, and welcoming experience for everyone, all program participants are asked to abide by the following policies, community agreements, and restorative safety protocol.
