Learn to spin, throw and pull with pottery classes

Adult pottery courses will be offered this summer by Southwestern Community College’s Heritage Arts Institute at the SCC Swain Center.

Offerings include a four-week beginner’s class in June where students will focus on centering and opening up, learn to pull a cylinder, throw a bowl and trim and glaze their pieces. A second course in July is intended to build on skills acquired in the June class.

Classes run from June 7 to June 30 and July 5 to July 28. The cost is $65 for the course.

For advanced students, a course in advanced firing techniques will be offered June 16 through Aug. 9 for $120.
