You will receive 90 minutes of hands-on one on one instruction per class session. The first class will be devoted to basic wheel throwing techniques, while the second class will be devoted to trimming on the wheel as well as surface design application.
All tools and supplies will be provided, a step by step demonstration will be included, and you will have the opportunity to walk away with finished ceramic works.
You will be given three 1 lb balls of clay from which you can create. Should you wish to keep what you make, one finished work is included in the class price. However, additional pieces (up to 3 total) can be finished for $10 a piece.
Your chosen piece(s) will be glazed and fired by Wyeth in the available color of your choosing. Your handcrafted work(s) of art will be finished and ready for pickup 4-5 weeks after your second session!
