Introduction to the Pottery Wheel - Arts Trail

Introduction to the Pottery Wheel - Arts Trail

2 hour Wheel introduction


Welcome to our Pottery Wheel Introduction Class!

Whether you're a total beginner or a bit rusty with your pottery skills, this class promises to be a delightful journey into the world of clay. Picture yourself with clay running through your fingers, the gentle hum of the spinning wheel guiding your creation. In just two hours, we'll guide you through the process of crafting a small bowl that you'll be proud to call your own.

Curious about wedging, coning, pulling, and ribbing? We've got you covered. Our expert instructors will demystify these terms and show you how they come alive in the art of pottery.

Once your masterpiece is complete, we'll fire it up and glaze it with a clear finish, making it not just beautiful, but functional too. You can pick up your finished bowl from our studio, or we can arrange postage at an extra cost.

Come join us for a fun-filled session of creativity and clay!
