Introduction to Wheel Throwing
You do not have to have any experience in clay to join this class! I will teach you the basics of wedging, throwing, trimming, and glazing! Students will learn to throw the basic forms: cylinder, bowl, and mug. Prepare to get messy, make mistakes, and experience the joy of making!
“my hand will always be imperfect...that is where the beauty is.” -Margaret Killgallen

ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR
Sarah grew up in Port St Lucie, FL, but calls Tallahassee her home. She received her bachelor’s degree from Florida State University in Studio Art with minors in Art History and Psychology. She is currently working on her master’s in Art Education, hoping to spark joy & curiosity in artmaking in others. She believes working with your hands grounds you in the beauty of the world and is a lifelong pursuit! Sarah enjoys sketch booking, ceramics, drawing, mixed media, and fiber arts. She loved teaching 2D art during LeMoyne’s “Art in Nature” summer camp last year, and is equally excited to teach others the joy in wheel throwing this semester. When Sarah is not making art or teaching, you can find her cozied up on a couch drinking coffee with friends, or on a hike outdoors!
