Wheel Throwing at Penguin Foot Pottery

On Monday, the Ink Factory team made a trip over to Chicago’s own Penguin Foot Pottery to learn the basics of wheel throwing. Our seasoned instructor Chris started the class off with “centering” the clay. He makes it look easy!

The team then attempted to create various cylindrical shapes. Lindsay, having prior wheel-throwing experience, was the standout of the group, and quickly took on the “teaching assistant” role. Messes were made, bowls were destroyed, and much fun was had. This isn’t the last time we’ll be causing trouble at the ceramic studio! Stay tuned to see our final pieces…
