What you’ll experience: Roberson Clayworks Beginner Pottery students will build a solid foundation in wheel throwing and the basics of hand building. Class is geared for the student with no clay experience or for those who have taken a class and would like to continue to improve their skills. The entire ceramic process will be covered, including glazing and firing techniques. Students benefit from taking this class more than once.
NO previous clay experience is necessary

Students at Roberson Clayworks explore a wide variety of forms and methods. It is gratifying to drink your morning coffee out of a mug you threw yourself, or to serve dinner to your family on an array of dinner plates of your own design and handiwork. Other students choose to focus on more abstract creations rather than functional pieces, drawing their inspiration from nature and the world surrounding them.
We have a well-equipped studio to meet the needs of beginning to advanced potters.
Each participant works at their own potter’s wheel using clay provided by the studio. A wide variety of tools and glazes are available to refine creative expression.
