Beginning Pottery

This class is dedicated to the fundamental skills of throwing on the wheel. By the end of this eight session course, you will learn how to make bowls, mugs and vases. It is also open to those who have some experience on the potter's wheel and would like to refine their basic skills. Students will gain access to the FAVA Ceramics Open Studio Program outside of class time for the duration of the course.

Please bring an apron or large towels and a small notebook.

scholarships & aid

FAVA reviews and considers all application for scholarship assistance. While we may not be able to provide a complete scholarship to all those who request it, we are committed to making our classes available to as many people as possible – regardless of individual financial circumstances. For this reason, it is important that all scholarship requests are received well in advance of the class starting date, so we may allocate our available funds accordingly. We may consider any of the following factors when determining eligibility for scholarships:

  • Annual family income
  • Individual or special circumstances
  • Whether the applicant qualifies for the National Free/Reduced Price School Lunch program
    (for students age 18 & younger)

**FAVA also encourages applicants to consider partial scholarship assistance, in which case the student only pays some portion of the class tuition.

All information will be kept confidential and will be used solely to determine the amount of scholarship assistance to be provided.
