Just Try It – Beginning Pottery Wheel

For beginners ready to experience the thrills and spills of working on the potter’s wheel, this course introduces the basics of throwing, trimming, attachments, and glazing. Students typically make 10-12 items – all food-safe, non-toxic, microwave and dishwasher safe! Your six-week course includes one 3-hour class per week, your own tool kit, clay, and glazes. We take care of the firing!

Classes are limited to 16 students. Please review our cancellation policy before purchasing tickets. If you cannot attend all six classes, please consider enrolling in a future class. One makeup per student is allowed for a missed class; must take place within the 6-week class period and subject to space availability in other JTI classes.. There are no refunds or deferrals once class begins.
