One event on June 1, 2023 at 5:30 pm


May 26 from 6:00 – 8:00 pm & June 1 from 5:30 – 6:00 pm

Sip N’ Spin is exactly that! Join Teaching Artist Ryan for a fun and relaxing introduction to the pottery wheel. No prior experience necessary. Students will learn basic throwing skills on the pottery wheel while enjoying complimentary wine. The potter’s wheel is one of the most enduring human tools. We really have no use for such a thing in 2023 and yet we continue to be intrigued by it. Find out why we’re still fascinated by diving in unabashed! You’ll have plenty of hands-on (literally!) help from Teaching Artist Ryan during this fun class and you’ll gain a basic understanding of pottery and wheel throwing. Each student will take away at least one object of their own making. The object(s) will be glazed and fired at the second, shorter class with Teaching Artist Sophia. All supplies included. Please enter through the 5th Street door.

Teaching Artists: Ryan Kitson and Sophia Aimone (glazing)

Ryan Kitson has taught ceramics for more than 12 years in the community studio environment and at the college level. He has undergraduate and master’s degrees in sculpture.

Cost: $78 Member / $92 Non-member
