Kids Pottery Wheel & Handbuilding – Cobble Hill Winter 2022

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 wheel throwing, hand-building and sculpture, students will craft  bowls, plates, cups, vases as well as amazing sea creatures, animals and more creative fun.

Students are taught the fundamentals of wedging, centering, lifting, trimming and glazing on the pottery wheel. In hand building, students learn slab, pinching, and coil techniques.
Your child will glaze work throughout the 13 week session, but due to the firing process, some pottery will not be ready to glaze by the last class. If your child misses a class and/or will not be able to glaze all of their pottery pieces, we will have your child choose a single color and then we will finish glazing their work.

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. Register for school pick up with your after school program registration.

**Missed classes can no longer be made up due to COVID-19 restrictions.
