Clay camp offers kids get a fun-filled week where they’ll experience most parts of the pottery studio.We’ve tried to strike a balance between finding themes so that kids can choose their camps according to their interests and keeping the camps open enough that they will be able to explore as many opportunities for creative expression in the studio as possible.

Camp Descriptions

Animalia (I & II):

Kids love animals! This camp will give kids the chance to explore their favorite creatures through a series of mostly sculptural work. We will still get on the wheel once or twice—perhaps to make a dog or cat dish— but most of our work will be hand built sculptural pieces. Theseare two separate camp weeks and do not correlate. Kids can take one or the other or both.

Classic Clay Camp:

A week of all-around fun in the studio! We’ll work on the wheel, makes culptures, use pinch, slab and coil techniques—you name it, we’ll do it!


Spend a week creating unique dinnerware for your whole family to use! Imagine sitting down to a meal completely served on dishes you’ve created!

Optional Reunion Meal: Saturday, August 18, Noon. $20 per person (family members may attend)

Public Art (I & II):

New this summer! This camp will focus on making art pieces to be installed in public places. Examples may include a totem, a clay flower garden, or a wall mural. These two weeks are a continuous program, but kids are welcome to take one week or the other or both. Pieces may not all be finished by the end of the first week, and those taking only the second week may be working on pieces started by the group in the first week. Kids will work collatoratively and will not be taking work home from this camp.

Wheel Throwing:

The name says it all! We’ll really focus on wheel throwing this week. Because of the demanding level of focus that sustained throwing requires, we recommend this camp only for potters aged 10 and up.
