Beginner Wheel Class with Willow
Tuesday September 12 @ 6:15 pm - 8:15 pm$58.00
A little clay and a whole lot of dirty fun! Wheel throwing and fun with guest instructor Willow!
Wheel Throwing Classes: Please don’t wear dangling jewelry or flowy sleeves, long hair should be pulled back and please, no flip flops! The floors can get slippery. If you have very long nails, you may find wheel throwing difficult. Be prepared to get dirty, but the good news is, the clay washes right out of your clothes!
Please note: We DO provide aprons & towels for this class!
Perfect for date night, girls’ night, happy hour, co-workers, group of friends, etc.!
No experience necessary – all skill levels welcome!
Your instructor will help you choose the best finished pieces to safely kiln fire. Clay will be kiln fired and ready to pick up in approx 2-3 weeks. You may choose to paint your fired creations for an additional $8 per person (payable upon return to paint). This workshop will take place at our 6850 Central Avenue location.
