Question from Leela
Hello everyone, I'm interested in taking classes, but the pre-requisites says 2 semesters of hand-building and wheel. I'm an absolute beginner and was wondering if it's mandatory to have the prerequisite classes?
Answer from Brenda L. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi there! As per 92nd Street Y, this will be fine. Because it’s a beginner/intermediate class there will be a mix of students at different levels which some beginners don’t like. There will be instruction for a beginner. Hope this helps!
Question from Susan K.
Are firing fees included?
Answer from Kristle C. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
