Intro to Throwing on a Wheel - August 26th 2023
Come and throw some mud from 10am to 1230pm! Dhe'n Dor Pottery Studio is located at 64 Lent Road, Weymouth North, NS, B0W 3T0.
Spend 2.5 hours meeting the pottery wheel. Everyone gets their own wheel and can throw up to 4 items. We will start off with a demo of how a form is created using the wheel and how it can be manipulated. After the demo, everyone will then get to work trying the wheel. Some may feel adventurous enough to go ahead and work at their own speed, but for those that would prefer, we will also be doing a step by step process so you can understand each step and feel comfortable in making your creations.
After your items are made, you will get to choose from our glazes to have your items glazed once they have been fired (this is done a couple of weeks after the items have been made). It takes about two to three weeks from making your items for them to be ready and I will call or email you once they have been fired and are ready for pick up.
Wear clothes that you don't mind getting muddy. Avoid wearing rings or bracelets as they may get clay on them and may make building your items a bit more challenging.
There is maximum 4 people in a class. Plan to arrive about 10 minutes before the class starts so we can maximize the workshop time and no one has to rush.
