Learn how to create your own clay pieces at one of our wheel throwing experiences. No experience necessary!
Choose from either a Wheel Throwing 101 Class during a 50-60 minute workshop to learn the basics of wheel throwing or as a refresher course with great exposure to the wheel, tools, and glazes.... or partake in a Six Week Workshop (12 hours) on the wheel to learn about making different shapes, handles, designs, trimming, and more!
Wheel throwing is a great activity for children (ages 9 & up) and adults. Each student will create a clay masterpiece and return in ~14 days later to glaze their masterpiece at no additional fee (studio time, glazes, and firing included).
