Pottery Wheels

Three ways to experience our wheels:
1) Experienced?  Reserve time on the wheel.  Clay is provided. Call the studio for open wheel time.
2) Not experienced or rusty?  Then . . . Try it! Just try it!  Saturday mornings there will be two hour private lessons with one of our three professional potters.  Clay is provided. 
3) Looking for a great Date?   Two wheels — two people.  Our three professional potters are fabulous instructors.  Reserve a time Friday or Saturday afternoon or evening.
4) Want to give it more than one try?  You can save money.  Call the studio to set up a schedule.

** It is important that people who have never thrown on a wheel before take a lesson before signing up for free time.   Otherwise both your time and money would be wasted.
Experienced potters who would like free time on the wheel can call the studio at (970) 243-0886 to reserve a wheel, clay, and firing.

This experience is intended to give you more than a taste, but a smorgasbord of lessons and practice time on the pottery wheels.  This experience includes an initial lesson of two hours, followed by one hour to practice on your own.  Another hour with our professional potter for an additional lesson will be followed by an hour of independent practice.   A final hour of time with our potter where you will learn more advanced skills and improve your understanding of where to go from here.  This is followed by an additional hour of your own time to practice.  Each session, whether with the instructor or independent, will include two pounds of clay and all firing and glazing for a single piece.

Some of the skills you will touch on are basic throwing, creating a cylinder, trimming, etchings and designs, and glazing techniques and considerations.  You will create different sizes and shapes in your pieces and gain an understanding of the physics of both the wheels and the firing processes.
