If you’ve always wanted to try your hand at the pottery wheel, this camp is for you! In addition to throwing pots, students will be introduced to hand building techniques in clay. This camp wouldn’t be finished without a day to glaze your ceramic creations, so it will extend to the following week for a glazing day. If you are unable to make the glazing day, I can work with you to find a different date.
