Introduction to Wheel Throwing (five-day immersive workshop)

A perfect introduction to pottery, this intensive workshop will cover basic wheel throwing techniques: centering clay, forming cylinders and bowls, and glazing and surface treatment. You will also have the opportunity to hone your skills on the pottery wheel without having to let a week go by between throwing sessions! Consistent practice is everything. Let the daily practice of making pottery build your skill set and bring your pots to the next level!
