Our creative clay camps provide children aged 6yrs and older (including teens), the opportunity to explore both hand building and the potter’s wheel (throwing).  Hand building techniques include coil, pinch pot and slab.  Projects vary with technique and individual viewpoint.

During our March Break and Winter Camps, join us for the day, week or one of our half day sessions.
