Learn to throw this summer in a fun 12 week class for beginning students.  Adult students will learn in a supportive small class setting with instruction from our teaching artist, Ron Wilson.  You’ll learn to center your clay, pull walls, and create beautiful, useful pottery.  Your work will be fired to cone 5/6 with a variety of beautiful commercial glazes.

Scott Beatty has been creating pottery seriously for four years.  A veteran of the army, he served as a Spanish translator.  He is a graduate of the University of Texas with degrees in economics, history, and applied mathematics, and worked as a high school math teacher and chess coach for 15 years.  He has worked as a studio tech at Alamo City Pottery Workshop, and works in wheel thrown porcelain, reduction firing, and celadon glazes.

Your class fee includes glazes, stains and firing.  Clay and hand tools will be available for purchase.  You may bring and use your own tools, but clay must be purchased through Roadrunner to avoid kiln mishaps with unknown clay.  We will adjust accommodations due to Covid as the situation requires.  This should be an exciting and informative class.
