  • Throwing on the potter’s wheel
    Visitors can sign up for time slots to work on a pottery wheel guided by our teaching artists. Participants will be given a ball of clay and instructed on how to throw a pot on the wheel with the assistance of Museum staff.

Pottery Wheel Activity Details

  • Sign ups for throwing on the pottery wheel will be taken starting on Noon on Sunday, January 8, in Studio Lab in MuseumLab
  • Sign ups are on first come, first served basis
  • We will give as many people as we can a chance to try throwing on the potter’s wheel, but not all visitors will be guaranteed a chance to engage in this activity due to time and staff constraints. If the time slots fill up, there will be a waiting list that will be utilized in the event someone does not use their full allotted time
  • This activity is for experimentation and learning purposes only. Visitors will not be able to take home what they throw on the pottery wheel; these pots will not be fired and we will recycle the clay
