The Two-Visit Pottery Wheel Experience is similar to the One-Visit in that our potter will first show you the steps involved in throwing a piece of clay on the wheel. Then he will work with you to create your own special piece. After this, you will have time to practice the wheel on your own. You will return approximately one week after your visit to paint your piece with glazes.
The time spent in the studio for the first visit is approximately one hour, your second visit is spent painting your piece (approximately one more hour for this visit)
Two-Visit Pottery Wheel Experience
Upgrade to a 2-Visit Pottery Wheel Experience for only $10 more!
Participants will have the option of making a small bowl, small vase or small plate with the help of our potter.
Pieces must then be allowed to dry out and be fired in our kiln before you return to paint them. This usually takes about a week.
During your second visit, you will paint your piece choosing from a full selection of glaze colors.
Your second visit must be booked and completed within 60 days of your first visit. We are not able to hold pieces any longer than this due to limited storage space in the studio.
Glazed pieces will then have to be re-fired in our kiln. Your piece will be available for pick up about a week after your glazing session.
