We will start with a short demo of the wheel throwing process. We will explain to you the whole magical process that clay is going through, from a piece of mud to a final functional object. You will then start working at the potters wheel with the help of our trainers, that will guide your way while you get familiar with the moves. We will teach you the basics of wheel throwing: - centering - opening - pulling - lifting a cylinder - giving the pot the desired shape. You will make a bowl, a mug, a small plate or vase. Then, you will have free time to play with clay on your own! At the end of the workshop you will need to clean up your workspace. This class is about the experience of playing with clay and feeling what it is like to throw a pot on the wheel. However, you may make some pots you really like. If you decide you would like to keep and fire your work we can discuss fees for firing, glazing, and shipping.
