In beginner wheel throwing class, learn the basics of working with clay on the wheel. You will learn the proper techniques and methods for keeping the clay piece centered and balanced, as well as how to pull the clay up into a cylinder or bowl shape. No experience needed and you will be amazed at what you can learn during this class.
Beginner wheel throwing class is an excellent pre-requisite to our advanced wheel classes and six pack series.
You may create as many pieces as desired in the time of the class (most adults create three to five pieces). Any pieces you choose to keep will then be fired, and ready for you to glaze with ceramic paints in the design and colors of your choice. Pieces need to dry completely before firing and can take up to two weeks, but are usually ready within 10 days. We contact you when pieces are ready to paint and you may come in any time during business hours for the glazing process with no reservation required. Finished pieces are $15 each (1 1/2 pounds of clay), and this price includes the clay, the trimming service, kiln firing, paint glazes and other supplies for the painting process, and the final glaze firing.
This is a class for ages 13 and up. Please see our Kids Wheel Class for ages 6 to 12. Or you may book as a group with any age for private group class. Call the studio to inquire on private group lessons and parties.
