Introduction To The Potter's Wheel - Individual

In this class, you will learn the fundamentals of working on a potter's wheel.  You will learn about the tools we use in the "throwing" process, proper body mechanics, how to center clay on the wheel, the pulling process, and finishing your piece. 

Enough clay is given in order for you to make several small pieces: and to give you the experience of throwing on the wheel.  After the initial demonstration of the wheel throwing process by the instructor: you will begin to make your own vessel - starting with centering, all the way to completion. 

The instructor will remain with you, guiding and assisting as needed: including hand over hand where appropriate and allowed.  You should allow at least 3 hours for this class. 

As the studio can be a messy place, casual clothes that you don't mind getting dirty should be worn.  An apron will be available to help protect your clothes, should you desire it.
