Wheel Throwing is defined in which a lump of clay is placed centrally on the potters wheel, and then squeezed, lifted and shaped as the wheel is turned. When your first getting started on the wheel it’s all about stepping out of your comfort zone, getting your hands dirty, learning something new, AND gaining a new respect for a very old art form. We can’t promise you will make museum quality artwork your first time but we can promise you will have tons of fun!
