Attendees will learn the basics in this Wheel Workshop, while they focus on centering, pulling the clay into cylinder and bowl forms, as well as a few other techniques to add detail.
If you have ever wondered about making pottery on the wheel, or are looking for just a fun activity on a Saturday, then this is the workshop for you!
We will start with a short tour of the space, where to find everything, as well as where things go for clean up. Then we will walk you through how to prepare your clay and your wheel station for throwing, including wedging your clay and getting the right tools for the job.
After the introduction, we will demo throwing on the wheel for attendees, and talking through focus areas.
Off to the wheel you go, and you begin centering your clay and moving toward creating your piece.
After throwing for a bit, we clean up and wrap up the workshop with glaze choices. You will pick a glaze for each of your pieces that you decide to keep.
