Yet you, LORD, are our Father. We are the clay, you are the potter; we are all the work of your hand.
I have always loved the biblical analogy of the Potter and the clay. As you get more experienced as a potter you realize how malleable the clay is in your hands and how easily you can get it back on track if it gets off kilter in any way. You learn to center the clay, and then shape it into whatever you desire it to be. I've seen God's faithfulness in my own life and watched him use those bumps and wobbles to mold me into the person I am today. I've seen how much I need him to guide me and I've felt his grace and mercy every time I have messed up.
In this 6 hr. one on one course you will learn the basics of throwing pottery on the potter's wheel. We will mainly focus on creating cylinders and bowls for you to take home as a reminder that we are all created and molded by our Creator!
Expect to get messy! I have aprons, but don't wear your favorite pair of shoes or pants to this class. This lesson is open to ages 12 and up (adults included) and will meet 3 Thursdays in a row to strictly throw. On the last class you will pick out the glaze colors you want to use for each piece you create and I will glaze and fire the pots for you. You will then come back to pick up your pieces once the firing process is complete (may take up to 2 weeks following the last class).
Session 1: April 28, May 5, May 12 Session 2: May 19, May 26, June 2 Thursdays from 4:00-6:00 Ages 12 and up (adults included) One on one setting $120
