My BFF and I took a drop-in pottery class a few weeks ago and I finally was able to pick up the finished pots! This was the first time I ever worked with a potters wheel and my pots were, um, less than perfect. But, I think with a few more classes, I might be able to make a better one.

About the Class
The class was at Clay Underground, here in San Francisco. The ceramic studio is in the Tenderloin neighborhood is a bit “special” (as my BFF would say) – but the space itself is lovely. There were a bunch of little studio spaces and about 10 potters wheels set up. They offer “Drop In” introduction classes and a longer pottery series for both adults and children.

Although I found spinning the potters wheel to be extremely difficult, I’m surprisingly happy with the way the pots turned out.
