The Potter's Words of Wisdom:
Many people enjoy
doing this class with two students at the same time;
more than two is not practical.
Two people makes
session times longer: two to three hours for the first session,
an hour and a half to two hours for sessions 2 and 3.
First pots are
usually small and often not round. I cannot guarantee anything
you will make a pot yourself.
The first and third
sessions are VERY messy, staining may occur during the third session.
Long pants are
recommended. Closed toed, firmly attached shoes are required
pottery kick wheel can be a dangerous object. Respect this fact and you can
a safe and very enjoyable experience.
