Kids Handbuilding at ClayHouse (Fall 2024 Semester)

About this Class

Our nurturing teachers, who specialize in sparking a passion for creative expression in children, know how to make our classes special by creating an atmosphere of learning, fun & friendship. Focusing on hand-building and sculpture, painting pottery, mosaic techniques and canvas painting, students will craft  bowls, plates, cups, vases as well as amazing sea creatures, animals and more creative fun.  Students are taught the fundamentals of slab, pinching, and coil techniques.

Your child will glaze work throughout the semester, but due to the firing process, some pottery will not be ready to paint by the last class. You will be allowed to make up one missed class by attending a comparable class within the same semester only. Make-ups are available subject to the space in the class you wish to attend. If the class is sold out, you may not make up the class at that time.

We will call or email to notify you when all of your child’s work is bagged and ready for pickup (typically 2-3 weeks after the last class). If pottery is not picked up within 30 days of notification, we will donate your child’s pottery, due to lack of space.

We offer school pick up at select schools at school dismissal. Minimum of three children to pick up from one school.  Register for school pick up with your after school program registration.
