Add to Wait List
Class is full

Grades: Kindergarten – 6th grade (must have completed Kindergarten)

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.

Registration fee includes materials such as 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.

June 19, 20, 21, 22, 23 9:00 a.m. - Noon

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


This class is sponsored by the Berea College Appalachian Fund, Folk Arts & Cultures Initiative Grant.

Payment plan available: $25 deposit plus 3 payments of $50.00, paid weekly.
