Let your creativity soar!
For ages 9 – 15.
Come explore the magical medium of clay. All the techniques of pinch, coil, slab, and wheel work will be demonstrated and explored with all campers.
Once comfortable with basic techniques, campers are free to let their imagination run wild…We will also talk about the history of pottery and look at ancient forms and decoration.
We will spend three days actually making pottery pieces and then the last day of camp will be dedicated to firing our pottery, Raku, pit firing, and wood fire.
Campers can also expect a morning break with a fresh popped popcorn snack. For lunch we walk to Salmon Bay park for a picnic and fresh air run around time.
We will also end the week enjoying handmade pizzas baked in the wood fired pizza oven!
Please plan to pick up finished pieces the fallowing Friday a week after camp. For example Camp I can pick up their finished pieces July 7th. Camp II can pick up their pieces July 14th. It is very important to make arrangements to pick up all pottery as our storage is limited and pieces will not be saved into the fall.
Fee includes all materials, snacks & pizza party.
