About The Event
One Day Fun Day: Beginning Wheel
Friday, March 31 11a-4p
Join Joe Robinson and the East Creek team for a day on the wheel in the East Creek studio!
Arrive at 11:00a for a brief orientation and quick transition to the studio, where everyone will have their own potter's wheel to use. We'll provide all materials and tools you need.
Then, spend the day playing on the potter's wheel with no particular goal, or come with a goal in mind and we'll do our best to help you get there. Wheel throwing is no easy task, so as a beginner please be sure to keep in mind that 6" is a good maximum dimension expectation. We will provide demos and personal coaching with the goal of having everyone produce one or two successful pieces by the end of the day.
Lunch is on your own, but if you want to bring food to heat up in the microwave or grill on our gas grill you are most welcome. The nearest restaraunt is about 15 minutes away- most participants bring a sack lunch. Some limited refrigerator space is available.
The programming instruction ends at 4:00 and we ask that all work in the studio is done by 5:00. We welcome you to stay for the evening in one of our tiny cabins, or to camp for free. East Creek is home to lots of great hiking and a beautful creekside hangout spot. You are also of course welcome to depart at the end of the programming, camping is optional and not neccesary to finish your pieces.
Bisque (first) firing is included with your workshop. You may choose to take your work away, pick up your bisque, or complete a glaze firing at an extra charge. You'll be presented with a range of finishing options including:
-clear coat and return shipping
-materials (12 lbs clay)
-tiny cabin rental (linens provided)
-tent rental (you set up)
-bunkhouse bed rental (you bring a sleeping bag)
