This class is designed to introduce you to the exciting world of wheel thrown pottery.
Master potter Clare Shannon will lead you through the basics of clay selection and preparation, tool selection, and operation of the pottery wheel. This class is purposefully presented as a small group ensuring you have enough time with Clare to learn enough to be comfortable when starting regular classes. All materials and firing in these classes are included in the cost.  You will be contacted via email when your work is available to be collected.  Oxart will hold your pots for a limited time before they are recycled.

Ox was a very calm and friendly teacher, with lots of good humor. The 2hr lesson went so fast but we managed to make 4-5 "things". A wonderful, enjoyable experience!
