Pottery Wheel

Take our pottery wheel for a spin!

Learn to throw pottery on a wheel in our introductory classes. Classes include instruction in basic wheel throwing and the fundamentals of working with clay. Learn the skill of centering and evenly distributing clay plus learn hand-building techniques.  We provide classes for beginners and those with previous experience who need a refresher of the basic skills. The registration cost includes all supplies, storage and kiln firing, plus time to glaze creations during open studio time.

Try-It Classes

Take our pottery wheel for a spin in a try-it class! 

Learn to throw pottery on a wheel with instruction in basic wheel throwing and the fundamentals of working with clay.  Open to beginners and those with previous experience who need a refresher of the basic skills. The class fee includes all supplies and kiln firing for one to two pieces. Students will need to return to the studio to glaze creations during open studio time (by appointment only) or we can pack up glazes for you to paint at home.  If you just want them clear glazed, we can do that for you, but adding specialty glazes is part of the fun! Glazed pieces must be kiln fired.

Family Throw Down

 

We schedule private try-it sessions for families with kids between the ages of 8-15.  Kiddos and grown ups will create 1-2 pieces of pottery on the wheel in our family version of our try-it classes.  This makes for a great birthday experience or just something new to do together!  Get started by emailing artbusnwa@yahoo.com with details about your group and dates you have in mind! A private try-it session is $250 for up to four guests and then $35 for each additional guest (max of 8)
