THE PROCESS

Using a potters wheel clay is centered and worked to create a basic cylinder shape.  This shape is then pressed, pulled and open to the desired piece: bowls, plates, pitchers the possibilities are endless.

WHEEL THROWING

With guidance and support you will learn to center clay to form a cylinder which is the basis for other shapes. Classes are small and designed for individual attention so that each student can develop skills in a relaxed environment. You will have guided studio time once a week and plenty of open studio time to practice.

Work  (finished and unfinished) and materials left in the studio after a new session has started will be discarded.  Thank you  for your cooperation.

ONE DAY WORKSHOP
Can't commit to a monthly course at the moment? Take a one day workshop. These workshops allow you to try the potters wheel for the first time. No experience needed, just a fun and open mind.
Workshops run for 2 hours, $90 per person. Fee includes instruction at the wheel, clay, and use of studio tools. You also get to keep one of your creations which I trim, glaze and fire for you. All this as part of the $90 fee. Maximum 5 people per workshop. Minimum of 3 to hold a workshop.
Workshops are private one day classes where you will try your hand at centering clay. If you want to keep 2 additional pieces that you make during your visit, there is an additional $45 fee. This additional fee covers trimming, glazing (choose two colors) and two firings. A process that takes 3-4 weeks to complete.
Workshops can only be taken once. If you are interested in taking more classes please sign up for a 4 week course.
