Introduction to Wheel (Ages 8-12)

There are few things more amazing that creating a useful object out of a lump of spinning clay. Learn to use the potter’s wheel in this beginning class. We will also explore ways of altering the clay surface and adding hand-built items to wheel thrown vessels. There are lots of opportunities for students to choose their own projects! This class can be repeated for students who wish to continue building skill on the wheel.

Introduction to the Wheel with Alexa on both Monday and Tuesday are currently full. Intro to the Wheel on Wednesdays with Kathryn Purinton is available!
