Introduction to the Potter’s Wheel

$35 members / $40 non-members

Discovery Park of America’s Pottery Workshops are the perfect opportunity to try your hand at the potter’s wheel! During the class, students are guided through the process of using the wheel to make a small bowl or cup. Afterwards, park staff fires and glazes the pieces to create beautiful finished products that will last a lifetime!

Amber Gentry, local artist and teacher at Dresden and Martin Elementary Schools, leads each class. A native of Dickson, TN, Amber holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Tennessee at Martin where she studied under renowned potter David McBeth.

These classes are for students aged 16 and up. Students should wear closed-toe shoes and jeans or other clothing they don’t mind getting dirty.

Space is limited in each class, and tickets must be purchased ahead of time, so call 731-885-5455 or click here to purchase your ticket today! Classes are from 6:00 – 8:00 PM and are offered twice per month.
