How it goes

This is usually how parent-child pottery initiation goes. Keep in mind that each teacher is different and adapts the teaching.

- Welcome and explanation of the pottery process (≈5 min)
- Kneading (≈10 min)
- Detailed demonstration by the teacher (≈15 min)
- Wheel practice by all participants, usually 3-4 trials per person. The teacher will circulate to help you! Be warned, it's not as easy as it sounds. (≈60 to 75 min)
- Choice of a favorite piece per person
- Cleaning of pottery wheels and equipment used (≈20 min). And yes, pottery is messy and cleaning is one of them!
