Introduction to Wheel (Ages 8-12)

There are few things more amazing than creating a useful object out of a lump of spinning clay. Learn to use the potter’s wheel in this beginning class that will cover bowls and cylinders. We will also explore ways of altering the clay surface and adding hand built items to wheel thrown vessels.
