Potters have been throwing on the wheel for at least 5000 years, which makes it one of the longest-held traditions still kept by modern craftsmen. Despite its ancient origin and use by what we can assume to be billions of potters over the millennia, every potter’s technique at the wheel is personal, if not unique. To help beginners learn the fundamentals of working with clay and the basic steps of throwing on a wheel. Please bring an apron, hand towel, and ideas to class. Clay, glaze, use of tools, and firing is included. Class size is limited to 5 students.
