However my mom and I have enjoyed taking art classes when she visits so on this trip up we tried our hand at making pottery and we had a blast going to this workshop. My mom flung her clay at people a few times and kept throwing her sponge all over but eventually she managed to make a couple of awesome bowls. I was uber excited because on my first try I made a cool bowl. It then took me 3 more tries before I made another awesome bowl and they even let me make one more in which I was daring and tried quite a few of the techniques they taught me throughout the evening. It's a pretty awesome workshop that'd I'd recommend to anyone. When you are done you pick out glazes for your pieces, the instructors will fire the pieces and glaze them for you and then you go back in a bout 2 weeks to pick up your pieces. I would definitely try working on the wheel more in the future. Maybe mugs and a vase next time. :) Check out our adventure below.
This was my first attempt and it was successful!
