Wheel Throwing for Beginners
Over the course of five weeks, beginner potters will be guided through the entire process of throwing on the wheel, to the final glazing stage. This process has many steps that your instructor Alejandra 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 final two classes 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, and all materials will be provided.
