Beginning Wheel Throwing (Thur)
Learn to center, open and compress clay, and throw small cylinders on the potter’s wheel. Trimming, finishing, adding handles, feet and spouts make pieces ready to glaze and fire.
Purchase clay at first class by cash or check - $20 (checks payable to Florida Clay Art). Bring an old towel.
