Description

Sisters and potters, Katie and Joelle White will give you an introductory lesson in how to throw clay pots on a spinning potter’s wheel. Once you’ve learned to control the lump of clay centered on the wheel, you’ll have a lifetime skill. This is a class just for learning that essential skill. You will leave with the know-how to make pottery in the future. If you’d like anything fired, a firing and shipping fee will be applied.

Class size 5

Level Beginner and above

  • Materials Fee $10

This workshop requires a Woodlanders Day Fee. Learn more here.
