I am actually writing a whole blog post about this for another blog I write for. That post will be published in April, after I have finished my 7 weeks of class (+ 2 weeks to wrap up afterwards).
I did want to share pictures from the class, some of these will be in that post, some will not. There will be other commentary on that.
Most of us will learn on this and can move to the electric wheel when we get a little more experience handling the clay. The foot powered one you can control the speed better (is what I am told.)
This is the actual wheel I worked from during class 1.
The other is the start of a mug. We are going to be learning hand-buildling of handles and trimming up the bottoms next week.
