Pottery Wheel/ Clay
Note: When registering for a class, you must register each person individually, that assigns them a "chair" in the class.
We only fire low fire clay. We mostly use low fire white in our classes.
Adult Try It pottery wheel class ages (16+) Youth and Muti age families Try It (9-any age).
Please bring a towel.
Please note: if you have long nails, especially acrylic or press ons, you will have a difficult time throwing pottery
75 minutes including cleanup time, demonstration, instruction and throwing. Most participants create 1-2 pieces.
After drying for up to two weeks, and being fired, participants will be called to return to paint their fired pottery. Then we glaze and refire and phone you when they are ready for pick up. We only hold pottery for 30 days.
Just a note, Younger children often do not have the necessary finger & arm strength & coordination for the wheel, but beginning young can be fun!
Instructors will guide young potters through instruction & play, most make one piece at least for you to admire. It’s a messy blast!
Hand building classes for all ages using clay for sculpting is relaxing, enjoyable and a great way to build fine motor muscles and coordination, You can also create beautiful works of art.
