This Intensive week long “adult clay camp” focuses on basic wheel throwing techniques.

The glazing class will meet one week, to a few weeks later.

This 15-hour program is the perfect class for beginners and intermediate level students who would like to learn or perfect their skills on the potter’s wheel, in a short time period.

Evening Wheel Throwing Intensive will meet twice a week for 2 weeks while Day Time Wheel Throwing Intensive will meet 4 times in one week or twice a week for 2 weeks. An additional 3 hours glazing workshop will be provided, to allow participants to glaze their creations.

The Wheel throwing classes will take place in our outdoor heated studio.

Wheel Throwing Intensive
Reviewed by Pauline T. on 11/2/2018
I took this course with a few others, but there were not enough participants to have an instructor full-time however Choplet accommodated our needs with studio hours. This was perfect because we were trained on technique while the instructor was there and then had time to practice our skills. I was impressed with how much a beginner like me could overcome a learning curve to make decentt pottery in just a few days.

It was great because we had plenty of time to throw and were guided as needed and could answer lots of questions but also strange because not the same teacher each session so loss of continuity and very crowded for glazing.

Reviewed by Heather B. on 11/22/2017
The class I bought ended up getting canceled due to a lack of interest, but Choplet was very flexible about letting my choose another. Biada was great! I learned a lot in the short time and was really happy with how my pottery came out. It was cool to take the class outside during the summer.
