Pottery Demonstration

Pottery Demonstration

Saturday, May 25, Noon – 3:30pm, MooseWood Nature Center (weather dependent)

When people talk about throwing pottery, they generally mean the process from the time the clay touches the wheel to the time the wheel is stopped. In this more general (and most commonly used) sense, throwing is the entire activity of shaping the clay on the potter’s wheel.

Join us for a pottery wheel demonstration and the opportunity to test your skill at bowl making, either with the wheel or by hand. Pinch pots can be made by younger visitors. Don’t want to get your hands dirty? Pottery will be available for sale with proceeds benefiting the Center.


MooseWood Nature Center is an independent, non-profit organization supported by memberships, donations and grants. Our mission is to celebrate nature through education and action in the Upper Peninsula.
