Give it a shot! - Wheel Throwing

from 40.00

First time at the wheel? No problem! This class is made for you.

Join us for a one day, 2 hour session where we’ll walk you through the basics of wheel throwing. Lumpy pots and goofy bowls galore. No extended commitment necessary. Give it a shot and see if you like it! You’ll throw 3-4 pieces on the wheel and will pick them up 2-3 weeks later ( after they’re dried, fired, and glazed! ). Classes are limited to 6 participants and students must be 16 years of age or older.

This is a one day, 2 hour class and must have 4 students registered to confirm.
