Look at Recreational News in the newspaper where it will list the clubs. Ceramics is one of the topics and it shows several locations for clubs who do ceramics. I believe they do both slab built ceramics, moulded ceramics and free form wheel thrown ceramics. You should call them as you first step. Doing ceramics is not difficult but it is applying newly learned information. Wheel thowing is maybe the hardest of the skills to learn but not impossible and once learned it becomes easy. My wife asked me if we could do ceramics about 18 years ago, so I introduced her to it. Not so many years later we were selling ceramics at juried art shows. I don't mean to imply it is that easy to get good but if you are committed it will come quickly. Good Luck.

OK; let me jump in because this is something I know about in TV because my extremely talented wife is involved.

First; If you have no experience you'll need to get some instruction, as the Ceramic and Clay Groups are clubs and not teaching groups. Of course, these wonderful people always help each other out, but not to instruct a total novice.

So if you're in TV, the thing to do is to take classes at the the Lifelong Learning Center first. Then approach one or more of the Clay Arts Groups and inquire about membership. At present there are 5 groups and they are at Mulberry, Miona, Laurel Manor, Colony and Seabreeze. The only problem is that they are pretty much at capacity because of the problem of space. The thing to do is to put yourself on their waiting lists.

All the groups are hoping that with the new expansion south of 466A, that a new Regional Rec. Center will accommodate a new Clay Arts Group.

My daughter actually majored in psycho-ceramics in college.

She wanted to work with crackpots.
