Pottery itself is a ceramic used to make potterywares, which can be stoneware, earthenware and porcelain. Ceramic pottery classes will teach students the basics of manipulating clay in to the final shape that they want it to take on. This sort of art has existed since the dawn of time, typically taking place in any ancient civilization that happened to be near sufficient clay of the proper type. So any student taking part in a class like this really is enjoying a piece of human history as they learn to knead and form what's before them.

Once the clay has been shaped, it's fired in a kiln to remove the water from the clay and give it a permanent baked form. At this point, it is frequently glazed and decorated to allow further artistic expression to be displayed. A student of pottery may also become quite proficient at painting, as they get the opportunity to decorate their work with a variety of designs and colors. Thus, pottery can be an art form which allows for expression in a variety of ways, and truly frees the student to create specifically what they want to make. A clay pottery class will likely cover everything, and at the end of it the student should be comfortable with every aspect of forming, baking and decorating clay.

A pottery wheel class can expose people to a different style of pottery, one involving a potter's wheel. Rather than having the artist form the clay, the wheel continues to rotate, and the potter uses their hands or a variety of tools to shape the clay almost as a form of a lathe. This involves a much defter touch and has a substantial learning curve when compared to learning the basics of simply clay pottery. Both will take time and effort to truly master, but they allow for a wonderful freedom of expression and relaxation through the molding process that many find meditative and calming.
