TRY THE WHEEL
Always wanted to try the potter's wheel but never had the chance? Join Sarah from Snakebird Designs to get your hands dirty and experience the joy (and challenge) of throwing on the potter's wheel.
During this two hour session you will learn the process of pottery making, from clay preparation to firing.
The session will start with a safety briefing and chat about the process, followed by a quick demonstration of throwing a pot on the wheel. You will then get to jump on the wheel yourself and get stuck into centring clay, pulling the walls and shaping your very own ceramic pieces!
To maximise your time on the wheel, the clay will be prepared for you. Due to the slow nature of the pottery process, your pieces will be trimmed and glazed by Sarah after the session.*
You will choose up to 3 items to keep and pick which glaze you would like used on them. They will be fired and ready for collection approximately one month after the session.
Please wear closed toe shoes, comfortable clothing and nothing you are scared to get dirty (clay washes out but it's best not to take chances).
Please bring a towel.
Long nails and pottery don't mix! Please make sure yours are trimmed short for the session.
*If you would like to complete the whole process (deciding the final shape of your piece by trimming the base yourself), this can be arranged. We will organise a time for you to return within the week after your throwing session to trim the base and decorate your pieces with underglaze, if desired. This additional session will be $40 per hour, paid afterwards.
