At the Kimball Art Center, you can join a beginner wheel throwing class and make your own pottery. “It’s only mud. It’s playing in the mud, which everyone has seemed to do as a kid. You sit down at this weird thing that spins round and round and you just play. Even if the clay falls apart on the wheel, you smash it, knead, wedge it and try again,” Kristen McDermaid, instructor of Introduction to Wheel Throwing at Kimball Art Center, says.
In the very first class, you’ll learn how to make a cylinder or cup. You might not make the perfect cylinder, but you’ll learn how the clay responds to your hands.
