This one-off class gives aspiring potters a chance to play with clay without committing to a full slate of courses. During 90 minutes of guided instruction, students make a one-of-a-kind ceramic plate by hand, using a colorful pattern of their choice. By the end of the class, each person produces and decorates the plate, which will then be glazed by staff, fired in a kiln, and ready for pickup in two weeks.
The staff of artists working at Terra Incognito's 6,000-square-foot arts space pass on their knowledge to students, teaching them to throw clay on the wheel, build shapes by hand, or sculpt perfect teacups with their hands tied behind their backs. Groups work in classrooms furnished with different types of kilns—gas, electric, wood, or sodium-carbonate powered—each designed to handle different projects. Classes on metalworking and basket making expand the school’s scope beyond pottery. The space also functions as a gallery filled with the finished ceramic work of well-known and emerging artists.
