Children’s Class (Ages 9-14)
A class for children aged 9-14 will be held on Saturdays (choose either the morning or afternoon class). While creative exploration with clay is stressed, beginners will learn the basics of clay preparation, a variety of hand-building techniques, glazing and decorating and an introduction to wheel throwing. Students with previous experience may focus more on wheel throwing. The class is taught by an experienced potter and is designed to be fun as well as educational. The class is small in size (maximum of 8) and relaxed and informal in style. Students will get a thorough introduction to the art of pottery making and have fun while creating their own pieces from start to finish. Registration fee is $175 (including clay)
