One time Wheel Taster Class - All materials and firing included. (For those of you who want to just have a go and let us finish your pieces for you.)

When you choose this class you get to skip most of the technical stuff and will get away with not having to knead your clay or finish your pieces. We will have the clay all prepared for you and will teach you the basics of throwing and help you to make a few basic forms then all you have to do is come back and pick up your masterpieces around four weeks later.

COST: $85.00

If you would like us to finish your work for you let us know at the beginning of class and you can upgrade to a Taster, all inclusive class for the cost of $85 in total.

Class will be cancelled if less than 6 people are enrolled (this has never happened) in which case all payments will be refunded. All other deposits and class payments are non - refundable but will be held and transfered to another class of your choice assuming there is a vacancy for a term of 12 months from date of payment. Please also note that this class may not be suitable for children under 12 years of age due to needing to be a certain height to use of the wheel.
