Question from Xiaomin X.
Is this class still held in-person?
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!

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!

The class was great! Dom, the teacher was great too. It was the right amount of hands on teaching to let you get a feel for the process, but also allow you to walk away wit something if you didn’t take to it as much as you'd hoped. I would highly recommend the class to anyone looking to give pottery a whirl... there’s a pottery pun. The end.
