This one-off class gives aspiring potters a chance to play with clay without committing to a full slate of courses. During 90 minutes of guided instruction, students learn how to “throw” the clay, center it on the spinning wheel and mold it into cylinders or bowls—the first steps to fashioning more complex creations such as bowls, plates, and top hats. By the end of the class, each person produces and decorates a pot, which will then be glazed by staff, fired in a kiln, and ready for pickup in two weeks. 

Terra Incognito

The staff of artists working at Terra Incognito's 6,000-square-foot arts space pass on their knowledge to students, teaching them to throw clay on the wheel, build shapes by hand, or sculpt perfect teacups with their hands tied behind their backs. Groups work in classrooms furnished with different types of kilns—gas, electric, wood, or sodium-carbonate powered—each designed to handle different projects. Classes on metalworking and basket making expand the school’s scope beyond pottery. The space also functions as a gallery filled with the finished ceramic work of well-known and emerging artists.

They make it look so easy but it's definitely a talent that needs practice! Would do it again in a heartbeat!!!!

It's a really fun place but don't wear really nice clothes It's also a bit chilly in there if you are going in the winter months so dress appropriately
