Both classes are for beginners. The "Beginning Pottery Wheel" class involves coming into the shop twice to finish your class (one time to make things, three weeks later to glaze them) and a third visit to pick up your finished items.
The Taste of Pottery consolidates your class into two visits, the first visit you make items on the wheel which are not kept (clay is recycled) and then in the same visit, you choose two already bisque fired items to glaze as your finished works of art. You do have to return a second time to pick up your fired items. The Taste of Pottery allows visitors who are not in town for a long time to enjoy learning and also is more convenient for our local customers who live a long way from the studio and have a more difficult time returning to finish their class. I hope this clarifies!
