Wheel 101 Class
Saturdays in 2022
Learn the basics of setting up a pottery wheel to throw, the proper tools needed, how to prepare the clay through a process called "wedging," centering, throwing on the wheel and how to clean up.
We give a demonstration of how to throw a pot. Next, we let you try by yourself for a short period of time. Then we give assistance, as needed, to create your own piece which can literally exist forever (unless it is heated to 2500 fahrenheit:).
Pieces created are finished at our studio and picked up at a later date.
This class qualifies a person to attend open studios and work independently.
Cost is $25/individual.
Materials and firing is covered in the cost for one piece (approximate maximum size-up to 8" tall x 8" width x 8" length).
Additional pieces of equivalent size are $5 (covers material and firing costs). These are paid for after the pottery session, if you create more than 1 piece you wish to keep.
Specialty Items are also available for additional cost. These require additional time, material, and firing.
Dinner plates (12" diameter): $30
Serving Bowls (12" diameter): $35
Serving Platters (15" diameter): $50
Pitchers (12" tall): $45
