Every Monday. - 6 - 8:30p

One-Day Workshops

Age: Min. age 14

Instructor: Pearl VanHoove

Cost: $40

In this fun workshop participants will receive an introduction to materials, equipment and throwing techniques. The instructor works individually with you to develop finesse and consistency in throwing on the wheel. If you are a newcomer to pottery, this introduction will quickly give you the basic tools and get you throwing on the wheel and making pots. If you've had some experience on the wheel in the past, you will get a refresher on the basics and personalized coaching on the finer points. If you are a potter and wish to introduce a friend to pottery, this is a great way to do that.  The two of you can take this wonderful class together. Each session will begin with a brief demonstration of an aspect of throwing, from centering to glazing, followed by hands-on time at the wheel.

Limited to 2 students.
