Pottery Courses

We look forward to having you join our fun and friendly studio courses! Throw Clay LA teaches two different pottery methods, throwing and handbuilding. Throwing (Potter's Wheel) uses the wheel to create cylinders that can be formed into bowls, platters, mugs, and planters. There is a freedom of form in handbduilding for you to explore - our courses cover slab, coil and pinch building techniques.


Sign up for an introductory course and begin your creative exploration with clay. These courses teach you the form and function of ceramics while also cover trimming pottery, preparing your pieces for the kiln as well as basic glaze techniques.


Continuing courses are designed to improve your pottery skills as you develop your artistic style. Designed for our members and potters with experience, these courses center on expanding your essential set of techniques, methods, and skills. All courses come with Student Practice time six days a week - time for you to experiment in the studio with what you are learning in your course.

All courses are 6-weeks and cost $295 - $335 which includes your clay, glazes and use of studio equipment and tools. Students must be 18 or over to register.


Session 5, beginning the week of June 19th
