Crack Pot camp is a fresh and dynamic way to spend a hot summer week! Join us for a fun-filled week of camp exploring clay, the potter’s wheel, hand building and surface decoration techniques in our professional clay studio. Our week-long camps run all summer long! Each student must register for the whole week of camp with the option to attend half day morning, half day afternoon or full day sessions. Projects vary from week to week, featuring several techniques and individual viewpoints. All projects are chosen to enhance the child’s sense of creativity, accomplishment and exploration of a new medium. All pieces created in camp are glazed and fired twice to be food and drink safe. They are ready for pick-up within 2 weeks after camp ends.

Morning sessions explore clay hand building and surface decoration techniques with professional clay tools and glazes.
