What's hot at the Arts Centre?! Our first session of Pottery Passion is wrapping up in a few weeks, with a new session starting on Oct 24!
Here's a break down of one of our Thursday night classes from instructor Becky Mendelsohn:
"Thursday's Pottery Passion class is a mixture of ages. We have two mom-daughter teams in our group. Three students are returning students, but we're all working on getting a handle on how to throw on the pottery wheel. I did a demonstration of wheel throwing and then set the group free to try, and everyone did. The aim is to try and try until your hands and body "get" how to center the clay. It's like riding a bicycle - you can't read about it and then hop on, you've got to do it over and over until it works. At our next meeting we will start with a small handbuilding exercise as many in the group haven't had that experience."
