Have you ever wanted to experience pressing your hands into a lump of cool, wet, clay... and then transform that lump into a vessel using the Potter’s Wheel? This one-night workshop is designed to give students new to the ceramics studio an opportunity to play with clay while learning the basic techniques of wheel throwing. Students will learn about wedging clay, using a Potter’s Wheel, centering clay, and opening the clay to create a vessel. No previous ceramics experience necessary—this workshop is open to all levels. All materials and tools will be provided. Since the class is only one night, students will not be able to finish their work, so enjoy the experience of trying something new!
