Kids n' Clay Mini Series
Ideal for homeschooled children, this 4-week series is designed for kids ages 8-14. Students are introduced to the potter's wheel, handbuilding techniques, surface decoration, and glazing. Your child will gain insight into what it takes to make the ceramic objects we use every day and the creative design process behind them. And of course, have lots of FUN while doing it!
Over the course of four weeks, students will be introduced to the studio, the various pieces of equipment, and given a general overview of the techniques they will be learning, both handbuilding (coiling, pinching, and slab building) and on the potter’s wheel. After that, they will start getting their hands dirty, completing both handbuilt and wheel thrown projects. The last week of class, students will then be introduced to glazing and surface decoration techniques.
Parents will be notified when projects are ready for pickup, about 2-3 weeks after the series concludes.
