Wheel Thrown Pottery Workshop

This popular 3 session class will take place in the Verge classroom over three days. The goal of this course is to guide beginner potters through the entire process from throwing on the wheel to the final glazing stage. This process has many steps that your instructor will demonstrate and guide you through. In the first session, you will learn how to center the clay and you will most likely form at least one vessel. During the second session, the vessels will be trimmed (creating a base). Verge staff will do the first firing (bisque) and then you will come back to learn about several glazing options and glaze all your creations in the third session. You will have plenty of time to practice and staff will fire everything you finish for you to pick up at a later date. No previous experience is needed. We will provide all the tools and clay you need. This course is geared toward beginners, but is also appropriate for anyone who needs a refresher and would like a more extensive introduction to the facilities at Verge’s Clay Lab.

*A note about COVID-19: Beginning August 4th, 2021, Verge requires all instructors and class participants to provide proof of vaccination against COVID-19.
