What you'll learn in this pottery wheel class:

Join us for semi private wheel throwing serious fun!

With a maximum of 10 participants, this 15 hours program is the perfect class for beginners and intermediate level students who would like to learn or perfect their skills on the potter’s wheel, in a short time period.

Evening classes will meet twice a week for 2 weeks. An additional 3 hours glazing workshop will be provided, to allow students to glaze their creations.

This Intensive week long “adult clay camp” focuses on basic wheel throwing techniques. Beginners will learn the fundamentals of throwing while more advanced students will review their techniques and target their difficulties while challenging themselves with new shapes and sizes. The glazing class will take place the following week.

Hi there! Firing is included, tools are not. You can purchase a tool kit for $15 on the first day of the session if you do not already have one.

Hello, any chance this class could be offered on a weekend in the future? I live 1.5 hrs north of NYC and have to drive in. Thanks!

Hi Beza! This class is only available on weekdays. The school is the one giving us the schedule and there's no update when they will offer this class on weekends. You can also check this class they are offering on weekends.
Answer from Paula B.
Wonderful! Thank you! I see they have only one seat left. I'll save it next since I'd like to take my daughter with me.

I took this course with a few others, but there were not enough participants to have an instructor full-time however Choplet accommodated our needs with studio hours. This was perfect because we were trained on technique while the instructor was there and then had time to practice our skills. I was impressed with how much a beginner like me could overcome a learning curve to make decentt pottery in just a few days.

It was great because we had plenty of time to throw and were guided as needed and could answer lots of questions but also strange because not the same teacher each session so loss of continuity and very crowded for glazing.

The class I bought ended up getting canceled due to a lack of interest, but Choplet was very flexible about letting my choose another. Biada was great! I learned a lot in the short time and was really happy with how my pottery came out. It was cool to take the class outside during the summer.
