An introduction to throwing pottery on the potter's wheel.
This class runs approximately one hour and thirty minutes. Please bring a towel for your lap. In this introductory class you will learn the basics of throwing pottery. We will focus on centering the clay, compressing the bottoms of your pots and pulling up the wall to form a cylinder that can be moved into a cup and/or bowl. You will be provided with two balls of clay. Not everyone ends up with two pieces, but we will certainly try to get you there. When you have finished your lesson, you will clean up your station and choose one glaze color per piece. After you leave, your pieces are trimmed, dried, bisque-fired, glazed, glazed-fired, and packaged for pick-up. This entire process takes anywhere from 4-8 weeks. Ages 16+.
