At Sawmill Pottery, we believe in introducing kids at an early age to the tactile, creative art of pottery. Kids ages 5 and up can try everything we have to offer in the studio. They will learn handbuilding, wheel-throwing and painting, decorating, and glazing at an age appropriate level.

Camp Descriptions:

All camps are $195/week or $50/day except for Claymation Clay camp is very similar to our afterschool classes—kids get a fun-filled week where they get to experience most parts of the pottery studio. They’ll try wheel throwing, they’ll make both functional and sculptural work, and many decorative techniques. All around fun!

Classic Clay Camp: Don't want to be confined to a theme? Come to "classic" clay camp! A week of classic fun in the studio- We'll work on the wheel, make sculptures, handbuilt pottery... you name it, we'll do it!

Claymation: New this year! This is a full day camp. We will work together for an intensive week where we will create characters, write a script, and produce our very own claymation short film! Ages 10+. $500. Single days are not available during this week. Kids should bring a lunch every day.

Garden Sculptures: There are so many fantastic clay pieces we can make for the garden!! Garden gnomes, toad and fairy houses, garden totems, just to name a few!

Musical Masterpieces: Did you know that there are a number of musical instruments you can make out of clay? Some of our possible projects are ocarinas, drums, rattles, and udus. Perfect for your artistic music lover!

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

Where the Wild Things Are: More animal fun!! Kids are welcome to take both sessions. Returnees would be encouraged to take their projects to the next level- working on larger, more detailed pieces.

Zootopia: 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 handbuilt sculptural pieces.
