ABOUT OUR CLASSES

The Northern Colorado Potters’ Guild offers adult throwing classes for all skill levels. On occasion, we have hand-building, teen & children’s classes, and workshops. Students must be 18 years or older to register for our adult throwing classes.

All guild classes are on Tuesdays or Thursdays unless otherwise noted. Classes are 8-week sessions.

Beginning students will learn fundamentals, such as centering, throwing, trimming & glazing.

Intermediate/Advanced students will continue to develop their acquired skills and begin to refine their work. Techniques may include such things as creating lidded forms, altering forms, and more.

Classes include one 25 lb bag of clay and all glaze/firing charges.  A guild member must be present while non-members are working at the guild.
