About the Camp:
This 5-day camp will allow persons ages 10 and up to explore the art of "throwing" on a potters wheel. Structured for beginners, we will focus on the basics of wheel throwing and aim to execute the designated projects for each session. The first week (Mon, Wed, Fri) will consist of learning how to throw, applying those steps to form your pieces, and trimming them to create a smooth and crisp finish. At the end of this first week your pieces will endure their first firing, known as a bisque firing, where they will reach a temperature of 1945°F. The second week (Tues, Thurs) you will glaze your now "bisqueware" using a variety of different colors. After we have finished glazing, your pieces will undergo the final glaze firing reaching a temperature of 2167°F. This last step will then leave you with a fully functioning set of dinnerware to cherish and enjoy! (finished pieces will need to be picked up the following week).
Up to 5 students per session. Fees for this camp are $330 plus a $30 material fee (material fee of $50 for sessions 3 and 4 if participating in macrame). This will also include up to one hour of open studio time available to each student if desired. Make-up classes for any days missed may be available during future camp sessions depending on availability. Other options will be discussed if needed.
