Saturday Afternoon Kids Wheel

Sat Jan 05 to Mar 02, 1:30 pm - 4:00 pm

Let your creativity shine through wheel-thrown clay! Learn that wheel throwing can be more than making a plate, a bowl, or a cup and come make functional, sculptural and fun decorative pieces using the pottery wheel. Learn the skills to throw a vessel and the techniques to take it further than function. Explore wheel throwing techniques and be inspired by the fundamental building blocks of creating 3-dimensional ideas and objects on the wheel. Play with form and surface, opening the imaginative outlet of expression while participating in building the relationship between form, colour, and surface. Try the application of diverse artistic techniques in a fun hands-on clay learning experience.
