Join us for a weekend of throwing on the potter’s wheel!

This workshop is perfect for beginners just starting their pottery journey, or for those who have taken 1+ beginner classes and want more time on the potter’s wheel. Students will keep 6-8 of their favourite pieces*.

This will be a jam-packed weekend with participants learning in a relaxed and supportive environment. There are only 7 spots, so there will be plenty of time for each student to ask questions & receive one-to-one support.

Workshop highlights include:

  • How to prepare your clay
  • Step-by-step instruction on how to centre & “throw” on the potter’s wheel
  • How to trim your pieces to create light and well-balanced work
  • How to add texture and visual interest to your pieces while trimming
  • Adding handles & attaching pieces together to create mugs, vases, etc.
  • Various decorating techniques using textures, carving tools, slips & underglazes

*Please note: students will choose their glaze colours and the Zenfire team will thoughtfully and carefully finish their pieces for them. Participants’ work will be ready for pickup within 4-6 weeks of the workshop date.
