What you'll do

I or another member on my team will give you a tour around the studio, then a brief explanation of the three steps in making a piece of pottery followed by a lesson on the potters wheel. I will lead you through all of the steps you will need to know in order to be successful on the wheel. You will then have a little flexible time to practice your new skills. If you would like to keep the item that you make, we can trim it, glaze it, and and fire it and send it to you by mail add an additional cost of $100.
Other things to note-
No pottery experience is required. It also doesn’t matter if you are left or right handed. Please message me so that we can set up a time that is good for both of our schedules.

I have a website www.Sunsethillceramics.com. It makes me very happy to share how to make ceramic items on the ceramics wheel with airbnb guests.

This was such a fun experience! Elizabeth and her assistant Julia were so friendly and welcoming and gave us plenty of time to experiment and play around as we got more comfortable with the wheel.
