What you'll learn in this handbuilding class:

In hand building, potters design and create with pliable clay. It is how people first began making ceramics and it is an easy and satisfying way to make plates, bowls, trays, sculpture and much more. 

On the other hand, wheel throwing is more like mild physical exertion similar to learning to swim or ride a bike. Although it appears relaxing and easy, it does require patience and practice in order to master. 

Note:
Please inform us whether you are enrolling for Hand Building or for Wheel Throwing. 

Minimum age requirement: 12 years old.

Question from Anonymous
What do you get to make during the wheel throwing class? Are you able to fire/glaze and take home what you make?
Answer from Brenda L. CourseHorse Staff
The pot that you make on the wheel will be completed in about three weeks. That is standard procedure so that the clay can dry and be fired before glazing the pot with the glaze of your choice. A second firing is then required in order to permanently bond the glaze on to the pot after which time the pot is then completed. Hope this helps!

Attended: Private Hand Building or Wheel Throwing
Grace was very helpful and patient. It was my first time spinning pottery, and she was very attentive every step of the way, offering thoughtful instruction, tips, and corrections. Grace did a very good job at showing us how it is done herself and giving us ample feedback while we were on the wheel. I was amazed at how well our pots turned out for our first time, and I can't wait to pick it up in three weeks!

Attended: Private Hand Building or Wheel Throwing
As long as your hands/fingers are positioned correctly with the right amount of pressure (need strength) then you'll be golden! I couldn't have asked for a better teacher to explain the step by step process to get the right thickness. I was very pleased with this class and can already imagine myself doing wheel throwing for many years to come.
