Pottery – Wheel Throwing Level 1 Afternoons

No reviews No reviews
Instructor: Bob Blackmore

Excellent step-by-step instruction on the basics of wheel-throwing for absolute beginners! Create various handmade projects that will develop your throwing, trimming, and glazing skills.

Fee includes instruction, one bag of clay, glazing and firing.  

Ages: 15+/Adults

Location: Pottery Studio, St. Albert Place, 5 St. Anne Street

Please bring an apron to class and dress for a mess! We ask students to bring a basic pottery tool kit to all wheel-throwing classes. Our hand-building class does not require tools. If you do not have a tool kit, you can purchase one for the class on our website, artsandheritage.ca and collect it on the first instruction day by showing your instructor the purchase receipt.
Note: Our pottery classes are pretty active. Be prepared to move around our studio spaces, lift heavy clay, and participate in cleaning tasks at the end of class.

ColleenClass: Bead a Flower Pin

"I loved that Heather came around and asked each of us what we wanted to get out of that class. Then she did demos each class based on that."

VanessaClass: Pottery Throwing Level 2

"The program brought together an excellent group of people with different levels of treaty knowledge. I loved how Celina approached topics with openness and empathy. Her discussion of the generational impacts of residential schools was very moving. Additionally, her sharing of her family’s oral histories of negotiating and signing treaties was eye-opening."
