Designed for children and teens ages 5-16. Have fun learning how to “hand-build” projects such as slab cups, clay masks, name plaques, heart shaped boxes, etc. Older students (8 yrs. and older) are able to learn how to “throw” on a pottery wheel, creating bowls, cups, plates, etc. Students learn various glazing techniques using both low fire, and high fire glazes.
Clay Studio + Gallery Inc. provides a positive, creative, and non-competitive work environment.
Please Note: Space is now limited to 6 students per class. Students are required to wear masks, and practice 6′ social distancing due to the Covid-19 virus.
Monthly Class: $240 one four-week session
One four-week session includes everything, i.e., clay, glazes, firing, use of all studio tools + equipment, and our professional instruction.
If a student misses a class we ask that they make it up within the same month of attendance.
Classes do not roll into the following month.
