Pottery Courses

At Throw Clay LA, our creative instructors teach the skill of pottery making through six-week courses in both throwing and handbuilding. Throwing on the potter's wheel spins and shapes clay into versatile cylinders, ready to be transformed into bowls, mugs, platters, or planters.  Handbuilding courses let you to experiment with slab, coil, and pinch building techniques, allowing you to explore and craft as you develop your individual artistic style.

Designed for our members and potters with experience, these courses center on expanding your essential set of techniques, methods, and skills.
