Wheel 101 Class

Saturdays in 2022

10-11:30 am

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.
