Intro to the Potter’s Wheel Workshop
Adults (ages 16 & older) (Held at Potters Place studio in Walpole)
Designed for the very beginner who is interested in a Try-It version of our extended classes. You’ll dive right in and learn to wedge and center clay, pull up walls and create functional pieces of pottery such as cups, bowls and vases using low-fire clay. Trimming your pots will occur during week 2 and you’ll underglaze and learn about various surface decorations during the final week. Students will leave pieces to be kiln fired and picked up at a later date.
$175 per adult, plus firing fees based on the finished size of your pieces
~ October 17 7:00 – 9:30 p.m.
~ October 24 7:30 – 9:30 p.m.
~ October 31 7:30 – 9:30 p.m.
CREATE A SERVING PLATTER If you’ve always wanted to try your hand at creating a functional piece of art from a lump of clay this hand-building workshop is for you. You’ll learn the basics of pottery including slab rolling, coil making, using texturizing tools and stampers, attaching decorative elements and lots more! You will create a beautiful serving platter that will be finished for you in the glaze combination that you choose. Repeat students are welcome to make variations of projects.
