Pottery Studio 202


with Kara Bledsoe

Calendar Jun 19, 2023 at 1 pm, runs for 1 week

Grades:  7-12

Class Limit:  10 students

In this fun and messy class, students will learn hand-building techniques and the use of the potter’s wheel. Students will also experience the delight of creating with their own hands and imagination in clay. Our goal is for each student to produce five projects that will go home with them to enjoy or give as gifts.  

Returning students are welcome!  Every summer new projects will be created and returning students will advance their skill level.

Registration fee includes materials including clay and glazes, supplies, snack, and a camp t-shirt!

Projects need time to dry and will be fired in a kiln.  Therefore, final projects will be available for pick up approximately 2 weeks after camp.  The McKinney Center and camp instructors will notify parents when items are ready.

1:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m.

A confirmation email will be sent to you upon registration with further information and tips regarding summer camp.
