Pottery Wheel for Beginners

$325.00Price
Sales Tax Included

This is a wheel throwing only class for beginners with little to no experience as an introduction to making pots on the wheel. Focus is on basic technique and the foundations of making pottery on the wheel. (Repeat students are welcome)

 

This is a six week class where you will learn beginner pottery making step by step including: throwing beginner forms like bowls, mugs and small bottles with 1-2 lbs of clay, centering, wedging, and reclaiming clay, proper use of wheels and tools, and basic glazing techniques. Focusing on a sustainable studio model you will **recycle all but your favorite pots**

 

**Repeating students** if you are a repeat student, you may register for this class but please work alongside the others at our pace.

 

One time tool kit-$25.00 includes beginning tool kit, 2 towels (take home between classes please) reclaim bucket for your scraps.

 

Clay is available for purchase and includes bisque firing. We recommend 12.5 lbs for this beginner class.

 

We use a midfire stoneware that is a light toast color upon firing.

 

Students generally complete 5-7 pieces during the 6 week class.

 

Glaze firing fees per piece are separate.

Glaze and glaze firing - Use of studio glazes is included in the glaze firing fee. Please see chart in studio for firing fees.

 

Why do we charge separate fees?

There is a lot of fun..and failure in pottery making! This pricing system allows you to only pay for the pots you want to keep, and helps us keep the flow of pots going in and out of the kiln on a certain timeline.

 

Keep what you want, recycle what you don't, and use that clay again!
