10 December 2019 • Sunday Beginner Wheel Class

Conveniently scheduled on a Sunday, but not much supervision. Lovely studio. The approach is a short introduction to throwing clay (the first 2 classes) and then you are left on your own without much assistance. Sarah is happy to help, but I feel the ratio of her to the 10 person class left me feeling a bit ignored; particularly when I was struggling. I would recommend having an assistant on hand to help. Sarah is an accomplished ceramicist and I felt she was busy managing her company affairs while trying to teach. In speaking with others in the class, the high cost seems to be a better value than less expensive classes where clay and firing are additional costs, but as I was limited to Sundays, I did not explore other options. The third class is about cleaning up your dried pieces, decorating with decals, adding handles to cups (if you were lucky enough to form one), etc. The final class is dipping your work in glazes. I was hoping to have more options than just dipping pieces into glazes, but that is the only choice. There are a selection of colours to choose from, but none that really appealed to me. My goal was to tick using a pottery wheel off my "to do" list and that's pretty much what I got out of it; that and a few wonky pieces that I am not sure what to do with. The people in the class who were on their second go around, had much more success and walked away with more professional/useful pieces. I am hoping to try a freeform class at another studio next.

I received one of Sarah's Wheel & Unwind tickets as a gift and loved it so much I had to join her 4 week Sunday course. I had the best time and can't wait to get behind the wheel again! I recommend this to anyone, Sarah is a talented and patient teacher.
