In this article we will discuss what you need to do in order to prepare for your pottery class, as well as some great tips that can help make things go a lot smoother.

Group pottery class – A great way for all of you to spend time together being creative

First of all, you will need to find a place with plenty of space for everyone to get together comfortably. In order to find a good space, you can use a combination of two methods – either use a large classroom or put everyone in one room, depending upon your desires. Obviously the size of the room will be related to the amount of people that will be attending your group pottery class. Once you have decided where you would like to hold the class, it’s time to set up the equipment that you will need for your small group class. You’ll need a large table for each of your guests, a wheel to place clay on and glazes, water to mix with the clay and bowls for the guests to dip their fingers in and eat from.

When you are finally ready to start up your group pottery classes, make sure that you have all of your necessary equipment setup. Have everything ready to go before you even turn up to the class and make sure that you have a list of questions or comments for the instructor. The first thing that the instructor will probably ask you to answer is, “why are you interested in learning?” Then they will begin the class by discussing the types of pottery that you might be interested in learning about such as glazing, leaded, hand painted, fire, and so forth. You’ll probably be given a broad overview of what type of pottery you might be interested in learning about before the course is over.
