Private Event - 2-Hour Intro Wheel Throwing Pottery Class
Learn to throw on the potters wheel in this fun two-hour class!
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, Austin Cook. After the demo, it's time to have a go at throwing.
Who’s it for?
This class is great for a date night, friend get-together, family night or trying something new on your own. Class offerings are for young adults and adults, 15 and up. Children under 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
What will I learn?
During this workshop, you will learn how to throw a vessel on the potter's wheel. This includes how to center your clay, as well as how to open your clay, compress the bottom and pull up your walls.
What will I make?
During this 2-hour pottery class, you will have the opportunity to make two different vessels on the wheel. Most students end up making two small cups, but due to the nature of wheel throwing, you might end up with any number of things, from a wonky little bowl to a wobbly little vase.
What to bring?
You won’t need to bring anything with you. We just ask that you arrive 10 minutes early, wear clothes you won't mind getting a little muddy, and leave any valuable jewelry (rings, watches) at home. Feel free to BYOB.
All clay, tools, glazing, and firing are included in the cost of the class. After the workshop, our studio staff will fire and glaze your vessels in our house glazes of your selection.
