Reserve a session and learn how to create plates, bowls, or cups without handles. The lesson fee covers 2 hours worth of learning technique, the materials, and studio maintenance. This is a private class where you will learn the basics of throwing pottery on the wheel. You will have a 30 minute demo and an hour and a half to practice throwing up to 3 pieces. You may choose up to two of the three pieces to keep and glaze. Class 2 is recommended if you want to have the opportunity to come back and throw on the wheel unassisted for an hourly rate plus materials. 

CLASS 2:  Trimming and Maintaining the Wheel (30 mins)

In the second class you will take your dry pottery and learn how to trim your pieces. You will also receive teaching on how to maintain the wheel for use in the future. Also in this class you can schedule a time to come back and glaze your pottery. We will have to fire your pieces so it will take a week.

The glazing is included with your classes and is no extra charge.

THIS IS AN INTRODUCTORY CLASS AND
