Kingston Ceramics Studio offers regular recurring ceramics classes for adults. Each class starts with a general beginner or intermediate demonstration/s based on the level of the students participating. After the demonstration students work on individual projects defined by personal goals. Basics include wedging, throwing cups and bowls, trimming, adding handles, stamping, carving, underglazing and glazing. Intermediate students will learn to throw larger, to use advanced trimming techniques, to throw narrow necks and wide bellies, to make more complex forms like teapots with lids, galleries, flanges, spouts, and larger handles, and more decorative techniques like burnishing, slip inlay, image transfers, and more. Each student pursues their own path, and chooses their own projects. Individual demonstration and assistance is offered to each student in every class, along with enough time to practice and clean up thoroughly.
Classes are ongoing, so there are no sessions, or make-up classes. Students purchase a 6 class pass which they use to reserve one of 8 spaces in a class that meets at their chosen time. Students can attend a class whenever they make a reservation, so the schedule is very flexible. Passes expire after 7 weeks from the first class attended.
All class passes include 1 hour of open studio time immediately before evening class, or after morning class. Students who want more access to studio time for practice can become a member at a discount. Reservations can be made using our contact form, calling the studio, or signing up at the studio.
Firing fees are not included. Towels and tools are required. If you have a pacemaker you should not work on the wheel.
Unguided practice is for one hour after morning class, or one hour before evening class.
