Class Experience

Curious about learning how to use the pottery wheel? This throwing workshop is designed for absolute beginners and first-timers willing to explore each step of the process. Participants should not expect to necessarily “make” anything in this 1.5 hour workshop.

This workshop is mixed-ages to allow for intergenerational siblings to learn together and for a family-style mode of experiential learning.


This project is funded in part by the Montana Arts Council, an agency of the State Government, and the National Endowment for the Arts.
