Over the course of 4 weeks, your child will be taught the fundamentals of wheel throwing - from wedging and centering, to pulling walls, trimming your vessel, and glazing.
These lessons will be tailored to their specific needs and interests, as they work at their own pace, and receive 60 minutes of hands-on one on one instruction per class session.
All tools and supplies will be provided, as well as a designated shelf for their works in progress.
Each 4 week course includes one 25lb bag of cone 5 B-Mix, however, additional clay can be purchased for $25 a bag or $2.50 per individual pound.
The cost of firing their work is included and glazes are provided.
