Wheel Throwing for Teens
Discover the endless possibilities in clay through pottery’s many creative forms, including bowls, plates, cups, and mugs. This workshop, designed specifically for teens, introduces students to the potter’s wheel. Students start with centering the clay and work their way to the creation of forms. Participants decorate their vessels with the Italian technique of maiolica, a white glaze that serves as a canvas for painting decoration.
