Summer 2023: TRY IT - Beginner Wheel Throwing Workshop with Steve Palmer, Saturday July 29, 9:30am

In this 2.5 hour session students will be introduced to basic wheel skills while making lots of funny mistakes and big messes—there’s no way around it. It’s just mud, which, through a bit of alchemy you will turn into something useful, cute, beautiful, or hilarious. So fun! After the workshop is over, we will dry your work, trim it, fire it, glaze it and fire it again for pick up in about two to three weeks. All the materials and tools you need will be provided just wear comfy clothes and bring your sense of humor.

Skill Level: Beginner
Skill Details: You will be introduced to the basic techniques for creating a pot on a spinning wheel. This is a great way to test the waters to see if this is something you would like to pursue.
Materials Included: All the materials and tools you need will be provided, just wear comfy clothes and bring your sense of humor.
Requirements: For those ages 18+ only
Instructor: Steve Palmer
Instructor Bio: My passion for working in clay took off while I was a Studio Member of the South County Art Association. The opportunity to work and teach in a creative, supportive environment, surrounded by artists for me is the ideal. I received my B.F.A. from Rhode Island College, and studied sculpture in Italy at the Tuscan Renaissance Center. As a member of SCAA and City Clay, I continue to explore the many forms and functions of clay. Through teaching, I hope to share and ignite the same passion and excitement in my students that I have for the ceramic form.
The workshop fee covers all the clay, tools, aprons and towels and all the work we do after the workshop is over to complete your pots so you can take them home.
