Wheel throwing! This is a private pottery wheel throwing lesson. Learn the fun and artful benefits of throwing on the wheel. This lesson will focus on techniques specific to wheel throwing. We begin with an introduction to the studio, clay, and tools we'll be using. Then hop on the wheel! This experience provides step by step techniques to create a wheel thrown piece. We start by creating a cup with one pound of clay and then use more clay to practice centering and discuss larger pieces; bowls, vases. All finished work will be glazed and fired by Rebecca. Work can be mailed for out of town guests. Guests are required to pay shipping. All skill levels welcome from a total beginner to an experienced person looking for a few tips.

I have been working in ceramics for over 10 years. I love it! Being a teaching artist has allowed me to share my love of ceramics with a variety of ceramic enthusiasts. I am currently an adjunct professor in ceramics and a community education instructor at Watkins College here in Nashville.

Rebecca was so friendly and patient wish us. She showed us what she was doing on the wheel and we followed her instruction and made 4 pieces of pottery that we can’t wait to see finished! I highly recommend this experience, whether you’re a beginner or a pro in ceramics!

This experience was amazing. My wife and I have always wanted to make pottery and this was perfect. The time flew by because we were having the best time. The best part about all of this is we get to have unique pieces created by our hands.

Such a great experience! Throwing pottery is something I’ve always wanted to do! My husband and I were already in Nashville to celebrate my birthday and go to a concert. This experience just completed the trip. I can’t wait to see our items once they’ve been glazed and fired 🖤

Rebecca is a wonderful and patient instructor...she works a piece similar to yours at the same time so you actually see each step of the process real time. This was my first time making pottery with the wheel and I had a blast! I intend to take other pottery classes when I return home.

Rebecca was a great pottery teacher! She was very patient and extremely helpful when trying to teach us how to get our clay to mold and move like hers. She is sweet and laid back but could laugh with us at our many mistakes! I would recommend her to everyone! Thanks Rebecca for a fun Saturday afternoon!
