Question from Natalie C.
Hello, What type of pieces will be made during the class? Could we make serving plates for example? Also, how many pieces per couple we get to take home?
Answer from Brenda L. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi Natalie! You will create little bowls and/or tumblers with the assistance of the expert instructors. Wheel throwing is technical and requires practice and time before being able to throw a set of plates or large vases. In this 2 hours initiation class, you will make 2-4 small items. The firing and glazing of One are included with the cost of the class. Additional pieces can be kept for an $10/fee/piece. You will be emailed 3 weeks after the class to invite you to come to pick up your work.
Question from Any
Hello, what is the total price if I want to make two coffee mugs? Will it be three weeks from start to pick-up?
Answer from Brenda L. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi there! Mugs require an additional step of pulling and attaching a handle, which the instructor will not be going over in the workshop. A private class may be a better option for this project since you will be able to have more individualized time and attention from the instructor. Hope this helps!
Question from Paula B.
Hello, I would like to take this course with my daughter; however, she is 13 years old and here you ask for 15 and over. Are you able to make an exception, since I'll be with her? She's a well-behaved girl who loves doing art and has become interested in pottery lately. Thanks!
Answer from Jen Verified Educator
Dear Paula, You are welcome to register with your 13 year old daughter. See you soon!
Question from mukwaya

The class was good! The instructor was friendly and did a demo in the beginning, then walked around and helped us individually once we got started on the wheels. The studio is a bit cramp and messy, but fine for the price of this. Plus, you get to keep a piece after they fire it/glaze it for you. In terms of COVID safety, everyone wore masks and they take your temperature at the door and the wheels are "kinda" spread out with clear panels between people sitting in front of each other. I had wish there were like 2-3 less people just because the space is kinda narrow and when cleaning up, you do have to be right next to each other since there's only one sink. But if you're fine with that, then def take it as a beginner class to get your feet wet!

The class was enjoyable. Two things I wish were different was I specifically took this class because in the comments someone mentioned they had their class outside due to COVID, but my class was held inside. I would have liked to know this ahead of time. The other thing was a few of us got lost after the 20 min demonstration so would have liked to see steps on the wall or have us all do it together step by step.

Great first-time experience! I went alone and it was really fun, and can see it being a great idea with the SO. Learned a lot and had a great time.

I had the absolute best time in this class. I bought it as a sort of bonding experience and gift for my younger sister who just graduated college. She had an incredible time and so did I. The instructor was friendly, encouraged socialization, and really took his time with each student to make sure they were making the progress they wanted. I came to this class from a printmaking background, so I had to work harder to shift my approach to get the desired results I wanted. Dominic worked extra hard with me to make that connection in my brain and my hands so I could learn new skills. He was also extra careful to understand what each student was comfortable with, something I really appreciate as a former educator. I’m looking forward to taking one of their 8 week classes!
