Try it Pottery Workshop
Our Try it Wheel Workshop, is a one day, 2 hour class. And its exactly what it says. Teacher will give you a quick intro and demo for wheel throwing, then you try it. Materials, supplies, and 1 brick of clay are included, to borrow while in studio. Additional clay available to purchase, but typically not needed. Aprons are available, but we recommend wearing clothes you don't mind getting dirty. Last 15-20 minutes of class is devoted to clean up. All students required to bring (1) hand towel you don't mind getting dirty to class.
** Registration required. **
Since the purpose of this class is to give students the experience, our expectation is that all pieces created during class will be deconstructed at end of evening and clay recycled. If you are particularly pleased with your piece and instructor feels its structurally sound, and likely to fire successfully you may opt to have your item fired for an additional fee and return at a later date to glaze ( paint). This process takes a few weeks.
