Pottery Class: Weekender Throwing Wheel for Beginners (Morning Class)
This morning workshop offers an introduction into the first two steps of creating your own ceramic piece on the throwing wheel. Within two sessions in two days you will learn everything you need to know in order to throw and trim a vessel at the wheel. Afterwards I will make sure to take care of the third step and glaze the pieces you made in a food-safe glossy transparent glaze for you.
1. Session: Saturday 11am-1:30pm
Short introduction into the world of clay, followed by a demonstration of how to prepare and center the clay on the wheel as well as how to create a vessel. Afterwards you will have around two hours to try on your own, guided by one of our teachers.
2. Session: Sunday 11am-1:30pm
This day will be all about trimming the pieces you created the day before. You will learn how to refine the shape of your vessel and create different types of foot rings for your creations.
If you would like to learn how to glaze your pieces yourself, please take a look at our three day class: Throwing Wheel for Beginners or if you would prefer an Afternoon Class please find it here: Weekender Throwing Wheel for Beginners (Afternoon Class).
