Youth & Family Programming

Our classes provide a fun and educational environment where children can explore their creative interests in ceramics, focusing on self-expression through handbuilding techniques. Classes for older children can include time on the potter's wheel.

Classes for Youth and Teens, and the Whole Family!


Classes and/or Workshops available each session for students 8 years of age and older

allowing young people a chance to explore creativity through open-ended projects with our professional artist instructors. Single sessions aren't ideal for youth under 8 due to material difficulty, but fun camp options are available seasonally for younger students! 


Family workshops available monthly for younger students and families (All ages welcome)

Reduced seat prices to allow adults and their children to enjoy workshops together. A fun and enriching

family experience which encourages bonding between family members of all ages,

and allows a space for kids aged 7 and under to work with clay in a safe and supervised way.

2 participant minimum in all Family Workshops. Children must be supervised by a parent.

Week-Long Camps available over Spring and Summer Break for ages 6-8, 9-13, and Preteen/Teen (12+)

camps explore themes and projects in more depth and allow younger students the chance to have independent fun with clay. During these times there will be Preteen/Teen classes available which explore the potter's wheel or other methods of making. Camps allow for more complete learning and exciting successes with the material.
