Youth Handbuilding : Ages 8 & up
In this class, students will learn basic hand-building techniques needed to acquire a strong foundational understanding of how to work with clay. Projects will include: Pinch pot boxes, coil pots, live planter animal sculptures, and relief tile carvings. Students will learn ways of approaching 3D projects, multiple different ways of working with clay, aspects of the glazing/firing process, and much more!
**Please note that this class (along with an age requirement) is the prerequisite required for enrollment in Youth Wheel Throwing in a future session. Students wishing to enroll in Wheel Throwing must attend at least 1 session of Youth Handbuilding or one of our Summer Camp Clay weeks and be 11 years or older.
Youth Wheel Throwing: Ages 11 & up
In this class students will learn basic wheel-throwing skills and some of the fundamental vocabulary of clay. They will learn how to wedge, center/throw, trim, and decorate their pieces. We will focus on functional ware such as cylinders, mugs, and bowls, but there will be plenty of opportunity to experiment and be artistic throughout the creation process. Students will also learn glazing techniques to make their projects truly one of a kind.
