You will be making a teapot with Michaela. Beginners welcome but wheel throwing experience is an advantage.

A teapot consists of the following parts:

1. Body: The form of a teapot may vary greatly according to personal preference but very often teapots are round or squatty.

2. The spout: The aim of a good spout is to pour well without even leaving one drip once the tea has been poured .The ultimate test can only be performed once the teapot is glazed and gloss fired.

3. The lid: The lid should fit snuggly into the gallery and should extend into the teapot to stop it from falling out when pouring tea.

4. The handle: The handle of the teapot should be strong and sturdy. It serves the purpose of pouring hot tea without scolding hands or fingers.
