Hand-Building Camps:
Ages 6 to 8

Join us for clay camp, where kids learn the basics of ceramics hand-building. Campers will experiment with low-fire clay and discover ways to build functional pottery as well as creative sculpture — monsters and mugs, nature-inspired works, zoo creatures, and anything they dream up. Each week campers will spend Monday and Tuesday making pieces to glaze (a hard, glossy finish). On Wednesday and Thursday, campers will make work to decorate on Friday with acrylic paints, feathers, string, and more. All pottery will be ready to take home at the end of camp on Friday.

Welcome to the wheel! Campers move downstairs to learn the basics of wheel-throwing, trimming, and glazing. The week will also include hand-building projects to complement the techniques practiced on the wheel. Each week, campers will spend Monday and Tuesday working to create pieces on the wheel. Wednesday is the day for trimming, decorating, and adding handles or lids. Thursday is hand-building day. Friday students will work in the glaze room to finish their pieces. All pottery from this camp will be fired in our gas kilns and ready for pickup 2-3 weeks after camp finishes.
