Wheel Throwing Class For Kids (10-18 Years)

$50
Discover the fun of the pottery wheel in this wheel-throwing workshop for kids in Melbourne!

This two-hour workshop, which is perfect for kids aged ten and older, will start with a demonstration of how to wedge and prepare clay for the pottery wheel. You will then move onto learning the techniques required to form a cylinder, which is the base shape used in the formation of wheel-thrown ceramics.

<b>The processes that you will learn include:</b>
- Centring the clay
- Lifting the walls of the pot
- Shaping the pot
- Cutting the pot off the wheel

Each child will finish the class with two items that are ready to be dried, bisque fired and glazed by us in our house glazes. The items can be collected two weeks after the class.
