Art Gannett's Pottery Wheel Boot Camp

Art Gannett has been making pots for over 46 years. As a potter, he is virtually self-taught other than a period of time working with Wendelin Stahl in Germany. Gannett is the senior thrower at Red Wing Stoneware and creates his own work in Pepin, Wisconsin, at the Little Plum Pottery.


Learn new techniques at “pulling a wall,” and get plenty of time on a wheel to practice. This intermediate class meets at the Crossing’s Clay Studio on Sunday, September 18, 12-6pm.

Ceramist and teacher Art Gannett will devote time to helping students better understand pulling/building a wall and focus on exactly how to get from a ball of clay to a specific finished shape. There are important guidelines and understandings for making any given shape, and learning and understanding them makes an enormous difference in progressing beyond the beginning level. 

Since this is an intermediate class, students must be able to reliably center and open a ball of clay and have a basic understanding of how to begin pulling up a wall. Anyone 16 and up who has this basic skill level is welcome to join the class.

Price is $59, plus $16 supplies plus a $3 per piece firing fee
