Make your own ceramics using the Potters Wheel
Have you been longing to use the potters wheel without committing to 6 or 8 weeks of classes?
Well, Claytime has a one-time guided introductory class.In this guided half an hour session, you will learn to center a piece of clay, open it, and work on the walls of a basic bowl. Your piece will air dry over a few days, then be fired in a kiln at 2000 degrees. It then turns into a white ceramic unpainted Bowl.
At this point we call you to come paint it. After which we glaze and fire it one last time for you to take home and use.
The cost from beginning to end is $50 per person.
Prepayment and reservation is required as wheel classes fill up fast.
We have 2 wheels and can teach 2 people at the same time.
It’s a cool activity for couples!
