Teaching Kids

If your child (age 6 or older) has expressed an interest in trying pottery, but is unable to commit to an ongoing session, this is the perfect workshop.  The basics of pottery will be taught in this 2 hour workshop during which kids create a unique-shaped hand-built item from lumps, coils and slabs of clay.  They will further decorate their creation with stampers, texturizing tools, and paints, and leave it to be clear-coated and kiln-fired.  There’s a different theme every month!
