    This workshop is the perfect class for a creative teen who wants to try a new art form: wheel-thrown clay! Here’s their chance to just try it, a two-time session giving the wheel a spin. Students will get a quick introduction to wheel throwing …then they try it. We will spend the first week learning the basics of centering and throwing, creating two to three pieces on the wheel. The second week we will dive into the world of glazing, learning a bit about the chemical reaction that happens to clay and glaze when it is fired in the kiln. Finished pots can be picked up a couple weeks later. This class is a great introduction to ceramics and the pottery wheel, no experience required. Students should wear clothes that they don’t mind getting messy and bring an old towel. Materials fee of $5 is due in class. For more information, please contact the instructor: sarah@joyfulclay.com.
