Pottery Class: Try the Wheel for Beginners

Regular price
Date & Month:

Not sure if you are interested in becoming a throwing or handbuilding type of ceramicist? Try the Throwing Wheel for 2,5 hours and find out!

1.Session: Tuesdays 7-9:30pm 

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. At the end of the class you‘ll get to choose 1-2 pieces you made which will be glazed in food-safe glossy transparent glaze for you. 

Please note that you will not be trimming foot rings or glaze your pieces in this class. If you would like to learn how to trim and glaze yourself, please take a look at our two- and three day classes: Throwing Wheel for Beginners (three days: throwing, trimming and glazing) or Weekender Throwing Wheel for Beginners (two-days: throwing and trimming, no glazing, either in the morning or in the evening).

Due to increased electricity prices we will have to adapt the price for our “Try the Wheel” class by 5€. Of course we want to give everyone who has been gifted a Pottery Class Gift Voucher the chance to book a class without paying any extra. That‘s why our prices will only start increasing from May 2023. Thank you very much for your understanding. 

How to prepare for the class: For the classes you might want to wear something you wouldn‘t mind getting a little dirty as well as shorten your finger nails. We will provide an apron and everything that‘s needed for every participant.

Picking-Up Your Pieces: Finalizing your pieces might take between 3-6 weeks. Once your pieces are ready, you will be notified via email and might pick up your pieces during our Open Studio Hours on Thursdays between 5-9pm.
