October 22 and 23 - Intro to Wheel Throwing
Saturday, October 22 and 23 (two sessions)
Time TBA (2 hours per session)
Have you always wanted to learn how to make pottery on the wheel? Look no further! In this workshop you will benefit from one-on-one beginner ceramic instruction that covers all the tips and tricks to make beautiful pottery. You'll learn how to center the clay and create forms (bowls, cups, mugs, planters, etc.), with the opportunity to hand-build additional elements (handles, decoration). The second session focuses on trimming and finishing your work. You select your glaze color(s), work is available for pickup no later than 30 days after the class.
This workshop is great for people who have never tried the potter’s wheel, folks who want to re-awaken a hobby and people who nurse frustrated memories of wobbly pieces from their high school pottery class.
This class includes all materials and firing, and all glazes are food and microwave safe.
Handmade ceramics make great holiday gifts! Although you might want to keep your pieces after you see how amazing they turn out ;)
Adults and teens of all levels welcome!
Safety Protocol: Masks and proof of vaccination are required for this class.
