Advanced Wheel Throwing


Wheel throwing is one of the most exciting ways to play with clay. It looks quite simple when you see a pot being formed. In reality there are many steps and skills required to master the techniques. This workshop will teach the steps and skills needed to throw simple pots on the wheel and will provide time for practice.

The Advanced Class is reserved for students who have already taken a wheel throwing class at Sunnyside Artworks.  Ages 12 and up only please. Wheel classes are limited to four students. Sign up early to guarantee a space.

Dates: July 9 – 13, 1:00 – 4:00…$275 including clay and firing fees
Dates: July 23 – 27, 1:00 – 4:00…$275 including clay and firing fees

Location: 44-15 Skillman Avenue
Students should wear old clothing. They will get messy.
Need to Bring:

  • Participants will need to bring a water bottle and snacks with them each day.
  • If they have an art apron, they can bring it along. There are a few aprons available in the studio.
  • If your daughter/son keeps a design journal, they should bring it along.

*The final firing process can take up to 36 hours! Every effort will be made to fire as many pieces as possible within the week, without compromising the clay. (If it goes in the kiln wet, it will explode!) Things made in the latter half of the week will be fired at a later date. Parents will be notified when the pieces are available for pick up. Items not picked up by September will be discarded.
