Beginners Pottery Wheel Class
Have fun and make works of art you can take home in this 2hour pottery wheel class.
During the 2hour class you will receive an overview of wheel throwing from clay preparation, centering clay, through to making basic shapes and learning about how your pieces will be fired and glazed.
After the 2hours you will feel awesome about your new pottery skills. Students can expect to create between approx. 3 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, we will bisque and glaze your pieces and they will be ready to collect from the studio in 4-8 weeks ( firing depends on lots of variables like drying out the pieces - we send a group email when ready to collect, please no emails before 8 weeks) or we can organise postage (3 pieces for a flat rate of $20 within Victoria)
