Wheel Thrown Pottery Workshop

Join us for a four-session introductory wheel throwing class! Over the course of four weeks, beginner potters will be guided 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 two sessions, you will learn how to center the clay and begin forming your vessels. During the third session, the vessels will be trimmed (creating a base). Verge staff will do the first firing (bisque) and then you will come back for the fourth and final class to learn about several glazing options and glaze all your creations. You will have plenty of time to practice and staff will fire everything for you to pick up at a later date. No previous experience is needed. All tools and materials included in registration!

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.
