2021 SATURDAY ONE SHOT DATES
One Shot! class held on Saturday 5:30-8:00 pm. You get a wheel, clay, a nice instructor and 2.5 hours to try your hand at the pottery wheel. You may be mesmerized . . . or not. The wheel looks easy but it can seem to have a mind of its own. We do promise you'll have fun.
Please be on time! This is a fast paced class where you will try out numerous steps on the pottery wheel. Your first demo starts at 5:40 pm.
What we provide: Almost everything. Just bring a small towel or apron. Because you are working with wet clay, there is nothing to take home, except those hilarious memories*.
Max: eight socially distanced students.
A bonus: if your One Shot! thrills you, you will get a coupon for 10% off your next ten week session. If you don't, at least you got some mud on your hands. Never a bad thing.
Creating a Safe Place to Play with Clay:
We have created six feet of partitioned space between our wheels reduced our class sizes and staggered our class times. We have new entry, safety and disinfecting procedures, including contactless hand sanitizer and soap stations. Face coverings are REQUIRED. The air in our wheel room is filtered with 99.97% HEPA filters which clean the air 4 times each hour/96 times each day. To see what other steps we have taken go, here.
Because these classes are small in size and fill quickly, we need 10 days notice if you cannot make your One Shot to be able to refund your money - please email firstname.lastname@example.org. If you want to reschedule, you will need to register for a new date via the normal web registration process on this page.
*Why can't you take a pot home?:
The reason is that from putting clay down on the wheel to picking up a fired pot is literally a seven week process: 1) making the clay pot on the wheel, 2) drying the pot to leather hard and then trimming it, 3) drying the leather hard pot to bone dry status so that it can be bisque fired, 4) firing the bone dry pot in a bisque kiln to prepare it for glaze, 5) glazing the pot, 6) firing the pot in a glaze kiln 7) picking up the pot.
