Beginners Wheel Class | Takeawei Studio Torquay
Enjoy learning ceramics on the wheel at the Takeawei studio in Torquay.
During the 2.5 hour class you will receive an overview of wheel throwing from clay preparation, centering clay, through to making basic shapes and glazing. After the 2.5 hours you will feel awesome about your new pottery skills. Students can expect to create between one and five pieces – we like to keep it zen and remember it’s not about the quantity of pieces, it’s always about having fun :)
After the class, Chela will bisque and clear glaze your pieces and they will be ready to collect from the studio in 4-6 weeks.
