At Sawmill Pottery, we believe in introducing kids at an early age to the tactile, creative art of pottery. Kids ages 6 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.




All camps are $195/week or $50/day.
This year, all camps are 1-3pm.

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.

June 17-21

Fairies, Gnomes, Elves and Trolls

Let your dreams come to life in this camp of magical delight just in time for the summer solstice. We’ll create woodland fairies and creatures as well as their enchanted homes.

June 24-28

Classic Clay Camp

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

July 8-12


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!

July 15-19


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.

August 5-9

Under the Sea

A new twist on an old favorite… this camp is similar to Animalia, but we’ll be diving deep and creating some of our favorite water-dwelling creatures and their habitats!

August 12-16

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.
