Annette Schwarte/ Nona Otarashvili-Becher Pottery on the wheel for beginners and advanced

Switch off from everyday stress for two days and get creative? Design your own coffee cups and breakfast plates? Our monthly weekend pottery classes are designed to get you started on the wheel. Through individual attention, we teach the basic techniques necessary to make simple vessels on the potter's wheel, all the way to the finished glazed piece. No previous pottery experience is required. By the end of the course, everyone will be able to hold their first home-turned cereal bowls, coffee cups, and perhaps much more in their hands. With these acquired skills, you can continue your successes in the Open Workshop.
