SUMMER CLAY CAMPS

For children ages 5 - 12, Camps 1 and 3 will be much like our Clay for Kids classes (see description above).

For Tweens and Teens (ages 11 - 17), Camps 2 and 4 will emphasize making bowls, cups, mugs, vases, and small plates on the potters' wheel and embellishing them with hand-built and hand-formed elements.

All four camps are "4+1" clay camps, with four consecutive sessions of making cool stuff,  followed by a return session to be scheduled later, to glaze all the goodies.

Camp 1 -- Ages 5-12:
Tuesday, June 28 - Friday, July 1, 10:30 - noon

Camp 2 -- Ages 11-17:
Tuesday, July 12 - Friday, July 15, 2:30 - 4:30
