If you are someone who has always wanted to try the pottery wheel and see what it's all about, then our Introduction to Wheel Throwing taster has got your name on it.
This two-hour class will kick-off with a brief run-through of the ceramic process followed by a demonstration on the wheel by your instructor. After the demo, it's time to get your hands dirty and have a go at throwing.
But don't worry, we won't throw you in the deep end. Our instructor will walk through the process step-by-step and will be right by your side (quite literally) to help you along the way.
Chances are you'll need a little more than one class on the wheel before you'll be throwing vases like Demi Moore in Ghost, but you'll definitely end up with one or two small vessels to take home.
During this class, you will learn:
◦ the ceramic process
◦ how to throw a vessel on the potter's wheel
◦ surface decoration
All clay, tools, glazing, and firing are included. After the class, we will fire and glaze your pieces in our house-white glaze, and you'll be able to come and collect them three weeks later. If you're from out of town, finished pieces can be shipped for $15.
You won't need to bring anything with you, but please wear comfortable clothes & shoes, have short nails, and remove all valuable jewelry.
