Wheel Throwing- Night one

One of my goals for the new year is to finally learn to throw pots on a wheel- like it or hate it, I want to learn it. In order to achieve this, I signed up for the Wheel Throwing I &II class at Kentucky Mudworks which is a ceramics studio right outside of downtown. My first class was on Monday night and I was the only beginner in the class, everyone else was there for the intermediate part of the class. It took me a good hour of the class just to be able to center my clay on the wheel, I was really struggling for awhile. After I got comfortable centering my clay things started going a lot smoother and by the end I had one symmetrical bowl (and five other pieces that weren't very good, but I kept them for practicing other things on later.)
