 Our beginning wheelthrowing class will teach you the basics of centering, opening, pulling walls, trimming and preparing your piece for the bisque (first) firing. We then cover the basics of glazing your piece for the high fire. Other studio equipment such as the slab roller and extruder are covered as well. We recommend you print or screenshot your class registration page, as it has the description and information.  You may not receive additional emails (sometimes they go to spam or an incorrect email is entered) so be certain to get all the information about your dates. 

 

Clay, Tools, Supplies

All clay tools and supplies are provided, please just come wearing comfortable clothes you are okay getting clay on. Some darker clays may stain, but our class clay typically comes out in the wash.

Please note class clay is for studio use only and we ask students not make work larger than 10in in any direction, and limits the amount of work made to be under 35lbs of fired pieces. 

First Class

Please arrive about 5 minutes before the class begins so we can check you in. At the first class we'll give you the student door code which works between 10am and 10pm daily with the exception of other class times. 

Age Requirement

Our classes are paced for and primarily booked with adults, we do allow ages as young as 12 and older, but ask that you visit us first if booking anyone into a class below the age of 16 to ensure that it is a good fit for them.

Cancellation Policy

By booking our class you will be agreeing to our cancellation policy, which is: 

With at least 48 hours notice before your class starts (your first class session) you may:

  • Reschedule your sessions for another month 
  • Cancel for a refund

After the 48 hour period, or if your class has started, we are unable to offer these two options, for any reason including COVID, illness, injury or unexpected travel.

 If you need to reschedule or cancel, contact us here.  Classes are offered in 4 week blocks and we are not able to separate the individual sessions. If you would like, we are offering additional Rescheduling Flexibility for $25, in addition to our class policy. You can add that option by clicking here. 

Missing a Class

The first class is foundational to the entire series; we strongly recommend that if you are unable to attend the first class that you consider joining us for another month when you can attend them in sequence. For the other classes, if you are unable to attend or miss a week, you can make it up by attending another regularly scheduled session. Please submit form Here to confirm availability
