Workshop Structure and What to Expect

Structure:

Workshop attendees are invited to arrive 5 to 10 minutes early to a workshop to get settled.  Teachers wait till 5 minutes past the workshop start time for all attendees to arrive and then begin the event.  Teachers will orient the participants, introduce everyone and give a 15-20 minute demonstration on the pottery wheel.  Participants are then given their individual wheels, a set of tools and clay.  You can expect about an hour and twenty minutes of throwing time on the wheel.  15 minutes is reserved at the end of the workshop to clean up.

Expectations:

Our workshops are designed to be appropriate for new wheel throwers and experienced potters.  Throwing on the pottery wheel is incredibly challenging and cannot be taught in a single session.  If you are new to the wheel it's best to think about a workshop as an an exciting experience rather than opportunity to make a gift for a friend.
