After School Children's Wheel TRY-IT AGES 7+
Wednesday, October 17th 4:30 pm-6:00 pm
Working on the wheel is an fun and "messy" experience. Your will be introduced to the basics of working on the Potter's Wheel. We will cover centering, throwing cylinders and bringing up walls. This is a great experience for any child who has expressed an interest in giving the wheel a try.
Price includes materials and instructions.
NOTES TO PARENTS:
- This session is an EXPERIENCE. Your child may NOT be able to create any pieces that will survive the firing process.
- IF your child manages to create a piece that can be fired, there is a HIGH probability that it will explode during the firing process.
- Pieces do not belong to your child until they have completed both firings.
- Some children will not have any pieces that can be fired. Clay will be recycled, you may photograph their pieces before we recycle them.
- We use 1 horsepower, profession grade, pottery wheels. If used incorrectly, your child could be injured. By registering your child for this session you agree to HOLD HARMLESS Big Dog Pots Pottery, LLC., it's owner, and employees.
- Your child must have an interest in trying the wheel, If your child does not like to get dirty or have their hands wet, this will not be a good experience for them.
- You must remain in the Studio during the session.
- We reserve the right to remove a child from the wheel if they are not cooperative, or are using our equipment in an unsafe manner.
Any pieces that survive the firing process will be ready to pick up within 4 weeks of the completion of the Try-It session. We will contact you when they are ready to pick up.
In case of inclement weather check our Facebook page.
If you have any questions, or if your child has any special needs, please feel free to contact the Studio to discuss them with us.
We want your child to have FUN, and we want parents to understand that wheel throwing takes 100's of hours of practice before a potter can create successful pieces.
