Pottery Wheels For More Access To Experiential Learning

My students need an additional potter's wheels in our ceramics classroom to provide more experimental learning opportunities for all students more efficiently.

My Students

My students are passionate and creative beginners in the art of ceramics. Creating projects in clay allows them a hands-on experience and allows students to shine in unique ways.

The excitement around throwing on the potter's wheel is infectious and is often what my students are most interested in learning.

The rotation is mesmerizing and calming for even my most energetic and active students.

I am always impressed by their skill development and strongly desire to provide more opportunities!

My Project

I am hoping add one Brent B potter's wheel to my high school ceramics classroom to increase engagement and opportunity. I currently have five electric and one kick wheel.

I am grateful to be able to give students a taste of what throwing has to offer; however, with a class size of thirty-five students, it takes me seven class days to give every student one chance.

The more time a student has to work on the wheel, the faster they improve and the more complex the instruction can become.

More wheels will give students more practice time to develop their skills!
