Kids Pottery Club for kids ages 10 -18. $75/kid per month, includes all materials and firings. This pottery club focuses entirely on throwing pottery on the wheel. Beginners are welcome, but they must have an open mind for learning through failure. Pottery is a VERY difficult skill to master, so having an open mind to accept that some days, the experience alone, may be all that you have to show for your efforts. This class is 2 hours long. I will begin each class with a wheel demo. Kids will learn to setup and clean up their wheels at the beginning and end of every class. They will also learn the ins and outs of working in a clay studio. They will learn how to ‘reclaim’ their clay for use the following week, in addition to taking part in regular studio tasks. This year, students will learn how to glaze their own pieces and how to load the kiln. We will focus on throwing technique and building functional pottery to be used for a lifetime! I am offering these weekly classes at a cost of $75/month which includes material and firing fees for the month. My studio is 6 houses away from the middle school on Gray Avenue. Masks will be required and NYS COVID safety guidelines will be followed.
This class runs every Wednesday from 3:30-5pm from October 20 – November 10th.
This class is limited to 5 students.
