Mindfulness on the Wheel

In this class we take a step back from our busy lives and learn how to use mindfulness techniques in pottery. In this small amount of time we will use our breath to help our bodies build the muscle memory needed to have better and more productive practice sessions as well as feel how pottery can be more than just making an object. The session will begin and end with a mindfulness exercise specifically aimed at throwing on the wheel, as well as active wheel meditations. During the class we will be focusing on our breath and body more than a finished piece.

This class is for absolute beginners or more seasoned students who want a fresh approach to their usual practice routine. Come and find stillness on the wheel.
