Throw Clay LA teaches two different pottery methods, throwing and handbuilding through our six-week courses. Throwing (Potter's Wheel) uses a potter's wheel to create cylinders that can be formed in the shape of bowls, platters, mugs, and planters. Creative Pottery (handbuilding) is more freeform and covers slab, coil and pinch building. The introductory courses also cover trimming pottery, preparing for the kiln and basic glaze techniques. Continuing and Intermediate courses are designed to improve your pottery skills as you develop your artistic style.
