#3 – The Pottery Shed


At The Pottery Shed the throwing class is your first basic class. Over the two hours, they introduce you to the studio operations, then demonstrate and explain throwing. In the second half of the class you get hands-on with the clay and learn how to spin and form the material. Use as many clay balls as you need to make a basic vessel. You may try and fail a few times, but with some concentration and luck, you’ll have made enough potential projects to choose your best two as keepers or store more on two project boards. The studio’s limited storage space keeps them to 2 project boards per student per class/session. The clay from failed attempts or from the non-keepers is completely recycled at the studio and used again.
