Pottery: Throwing on the Wheel Workshop

August 11, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm


This pottery class is designed to teach you the basics for throwing on the wheel. While there is a lot you can learn, all you really need to know to get started is the basics, then its practice, practice, practice. We will focus on centering and having you be able to consistently create the cylinder. From the cylinder you will be able to create so many other forms in seconds.

Our pottery studio is small so you will have to take turns throwing but watching others can be as helpful as practicing yourself.

Please be sure to wear clothes that will get dirt (possibly stained) and short fingernails are helpful.

Instructor: Sarah Thornton

Cost of the class includes 5 lbs of clay to throw on the wheel

Ages: 13 and older (minors will need to be registered by their parent/guardian)

Deadline to sign up for this workshop is Friday by 6 pm.
