The number of pottery pieces you make is up to you! Our program is process-based and everyone works at their own pace. We will fire your best work after class, that means up to 2 pieces per class in workshops and up to 4 in sessions. Remember, it's about practice over perfection, so don't worry if not all your pieces are "keepers." Enjoy the journey!
You do the glazing! After something is created on the wheel, your clay will be completely dried out and fired in the kiln (a really really hot oven) over the course of the next week. Once it’s fired, the professional quality glazes can be applied by brush or dipping techniques. The glazing time is built into both of our programs.
We don’t offer shared wheel time. Trust me, you won’t want to share once you get started! However, you should absolutely book in with a friend and work in the same class.This way you have more time creating and practising.
Air bubbles or pockets inside the clay can cause occasional explosions in the kiln. These are rare, and we always try to “bang out the bubbles” before throwing the clay. You’ll learn more about that in class.
