Introductory potter’s wheel at SHY RABBIT in July

Have you ever wanted to throw on the potter’s wheel?

This is the perfect opportunity to learn the basics from a skilled professional in a relaxed, comfortable and encouraging environment. No previous experience is required.

There are two spaces currently remaining for introductory Ceramics from the Potter’s Wheel at SHY RABBIT.

Ceramics from the Potter’s Wheel will run five consecutive Wednesday evenings, beginning June 30 and ending July 28. Make up sessions are available for students that are unable to attend all five classes.

Students will return for a separate glazing session shortly after their work is bisque-fired.

Classes are kept small for personalized attention, improved learning, and overall enjoyment.

Students are encouraged to advance at their own pace by practicing on the wheel during the optional daily studio-time that is included in the course fee.

Workshops are also designed for those with prior experience, and are geared to enhance existing skill levels in preparation for intermediate and advanced wheel classes, if desired.
