We're excited about changes to our Pottery Class structure & location!
Starting with the Early Winter session, Pottery Classes will be held at the Pottery Studio at the Weddinton Activity Center, 13601 Providence Rd., Weddington (home of Southeastern Gymnastics). This is the studio where we've held our Pottery Summer camps for the past six years.
Pottery classes are a great opportunity for older children to explore the mess, the joy, and the challenges of working with clay. No picking pre-made pottery off a shelf to paint here! Each artist experiences the entire process of sculpting, beginning with wet clay and ending with kiln fired ceramic pieces!
They will absorb fun factoids about kiln temperatures, the history of pottery making and practice rolling coils, building slabs, pressing textures, & throwing on the wheel. It's very exciting to see these kids transform a blob of wet mud into a hand thrown bowl they can actually use!
Parents, prepare yourself for ceramic awesome-ness! At pick up, you may wonder if we took your kids on a mud run through the woods and then hosed them off, but we just consider that a successful day in the clay studio! Finished & fired pieces are ready for pick up the week after the class session ends (to allow us time to kiln fire their final creations).
Classes are intimate and focused, so students get ample assistance with process & techniques.
$160 Tuition covers all materials, including clay, tools, glazes, and firing. Register same day as a friend to save 10% (OR enjoy a 10% sibling discount!)
