This summer camp is great for any kid 8-12 who is interested in getting their hands in clay and building something! On Day 1 will be an introduction to feel how the clay moves when we pinch, press, and squish it. We will make functional ware (cups, bowls, plates, and mugs). We will also make flat pieces like “Gwen’s room: keep out”. On Day 2, we will begin building a house with windows and doors so that a light can be placed inside whick can be used for a nightlight or a glowing inspiration piece. We’ll also make little refrigerator magnet keepsakes. On Day 3, we’ll finish the houses by adding drainpipes or fireplaces and paint the flat pieces we made Monday. Then we will have a destruction day!! A fun time will be had by all. Parents are welcome to stay for part of all of class.
