Wheel Throwing Course & Individual Sessions
"In the middle of the night, a woman sits alone at a pottery wheel. Her boyfriend, shirtless, approaches, sits behind her, and reaches out his hand, accidentally ruining her pot. His hands interlaced with hers, stroking the wet clay. He begins kissing her, and she leaps into his arms, the pottery wheel abandoned in the heat of passion." This is the scene from the Ghost movie everyone have in mind when they think of pottery.
We can't offer you the same experience but we guarantee you will enjoy the world of clay at Mitra Ceramic House.
The Wheel throwing Course includes 6 sessions which you will learn about:
Different clay types

This class is mainly for those who would like a mixture of wheel throwing and hand-building lessons to find out which one they would like to continue exploring.
