Handbuilding with Clay for Kids
November 29 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 3:00 pm on Wednesday, repeating until November 29, 2023
Kids ages 8 to 12 years are invited to play with clay! Learn how to construct clay objects with hand building techniques. In each five-week series, we will complete four projects and we will cover a new handbuilding concept each week. This course will include slab building, coil building, small scale sculptural techniques and we will also make a mug! Pieces will be finished with underglaze painting in the final class. Please be aware that the projects will need to go through a two-step firing process in kilns and will be returned one to three weeks after class completion. Join us for one or both of the five-week terms. All materials included.
