There are a few spaces remaining at the Dorchester Center for the Arts Pottery Wheel class to be held at the facility. For the beginner, this six-week class will lay the foundational skills for work on the pottery wheel, including throwing, trimming, and glaze application.

Class fee includes clay, glazes, kiln firing, and use of studio tools: bucket, sponge, wire tool, wood rib, wooden knife, metal rib, needle tool, and ribbon tool.

This is also an excellent option for those with a little experience to review basic skills. Fees are $155 for DCA members; $190 for non-members, and materials are included. Instructing will be Patrick Jurena.
