Ages 12+ What is Wheel Throwing 101? Wheel Throwing 101 is a our beginner one time wheel throwing class, no experience is required. In this class students are to learn the basics of wheel throwing including centering, pulling the walls, and moral support to make a functional piece. All materials and equipment are included with this class. Where does my piece go after class? After class your creations are to dry for a few days followed by being placed in the kiln for the first of two firings. Once the clay is dry enough it is placed in the kiln for 48 hours, unloaded, glazed, and reloaded into the kiln where it will fully vitrify at 2167°F (Yes that’s hotter than lava!). Once the kiln cools your piece is unloaded, packaged, and ready for pick up. If you do decide to make a functional piece please note that all of our glazes and clay bodies are food safe : ) Gratuity is included for all teachers What should I wear to class? Although messy, the clay used in class will not stain your clothing. However we do recommend wearing comfortable apparel. Should I bring anything? Just yourself. All materials and tools are included. If interested in more long-term classes please see our monthly courses.
