Tools of the Trade

Do you have a collection of throwing tools but some you never use? Or do you wonder what some potters do with so many tools you’ve never seen? This is a mixed-levels course during which we will investigate wheel-throwing tools. Each week we will focus on a type of tool (ribs, sticks, wires, trimming, brushes, etc.) and explore their various uses and potential for each stage in the process: throwing, trimming, and decorating. Students will also be invited to share their favorite tools and/or create a new tool for future use.

Prerequisite: at least one beginning wheel class.


Basic wheel-throwing tool kit, towels, apron (optional)

$20/bag of clay (beyond one bag included in course fee)

Section A) Molly Cronenwett – Wednesdays, 6:30-9pm, Sept 11 – Oct 23 (Fall 2019)


Tuition includes one bag of clay and covers glazes and firing fees, but not tools. Students may need to purchase a basic tool kit prior to the first class.
