"I have been a potter for ten years and have worked at other studios in Charlotte and the Whirling Wheel is, by far, the best. The 24-hour access is a huge benefit. There is plenty of work space and storage space. The kilns are run often so I don't have to wait to forever to get things finished. The teachers are talented, flexible and take a keen interest in each student's progress. Celena is doing an awesome job. Everyone is friendly and generous with ideas and suggestions. Other pottery studios I have worked at haven't been like this at all. The Whirling Wheel makes being a potter fun and productive."

Students sign up for a specific class time and meet at that time once a week through the 8 week session. If a student is absent for one of their class times, they have the entire 8 week session to make it up by sitting in on another class.
