The goal of Beginners Pottery Wheel is to learn 

- Centering

- Basic Bowls

- Basic Cylinders

- Pre-Trimming

- Clean Up and Storing Pieces

We focus heavily on centering during this first class. Centering is the base for every piece you create on the wheel. If the base isn't centered, everything above it will be off as well.

Week 1:   Intro to the studio and the basics of centering and throwing.

Week 2:   Centering refresher and cylinders.

Week 3:   Working on bowls

Week 4:   Throw your heart out. The final week we're working on tweaking pieces and working off imperfections.

Class lasts 2 hours. The first hour will be instruction, the rest will be for practice. We encourage you to keep practicing outside of class for the most growth!
