Adult participant is required. Spend some quality time as a family exploring clay! Whether your clay creations are purely decorative or practical pieces, youll treasure the time you spend working both independently and as a family. You will explore clay construction (pinch, coil and slab " no wheel) and various glaze finishes. Projects are fired in a kiln on our premises and students will take home several finished pieces. Younger children will need their adult pottery partner to assist through part of the process, which is part of the fun youll have together!
