CLAY FOR KIDSKids at the wheel

Hands-on creative learning and fun!

In each Clay for Kids session, each child has the opportunity to:

Sculpt animals and objects and creatures of his own invention
 Roll out and decorate tiles and trivets and slab-formed bowls and vases
Learn to throw small cereal bowls, plates, pet dishes, and cups on the potter's wheel

We emphasize creativity and give the kids lots of latitude on what they choose to make.  We also have lots of ideas for any child who wants his imagination sparked!

We loosely recommend ages 5 and up, but younger children may do well if an adult stays and works with them.

Register your child (or children) for just one session or for as many as you like, picking dates ala carte that work for you, even mixing Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays.
