Intro To Wheel Throwing

Harness centrifugal force to form clay into basic forms like tumblers and bowls!

You'll learn how to center clay, pull walls, trim, finish and glaze your wheel thrown pieces! 

 

We've got the wheels, you bring your focus and determination.  

 

Intro to hand building

Take things a bit slower than wheel throwing and learn to form clay with just your hands, water, tools and molds.

 

Make mugs, bowls,  platters and more from coils and slabs.

 

Experiment with carving, adding texture, and painting with glazes and underglazes- all with your own two hands!
