Our Handbuilding and Wheelthrowing classes, School Day Off Camps, themed Workshops and Birthday parties are designed to teach children the basics of making ceramic pieces from start to finish. Our goal is to allow children to explore their creativity through this versatile medium while teaching specific skills to materialize their vision.

HANDBUILDING CLASSES: Your child will love this messy, squishy medium! Students will use pinch, coil and slab techniques. Fun tools such as cookie cutters and stamps will be explored. Handbuilding classes are for children 3 and up. Classes meet once a week for 5 weeks.

WHEELTHROWING CLASSES: One experience on the wheel and you child will be hooked. Wheelthrowing is challenging but extremely rewarding. Children 9 and up will experience the potters wheel to create bowls, cylinders and cups. The classes will cover centering, trimming and glazing. Our small class size ensures individual attention to all our students. Classes meet once a week for 5 weeks.

SCHOOL DAY OFF CAMPS: Our 3 hour camps on holidays are for ages 5 and up. Children make and paint clay projects and take a break for lunch. 3 hour camps can be scheduled on non holidays for groups of 5 of more children.

WORKSHOPS: These 1 1/2 hour workshops are usually theme based and for ages 4 and up. A great way to explore clay while making a keepsake. Some examples of themes are Halloween, Christmas, Hanukkah, and Valentines Day.
