Little Kid Pottery Class, 6-week Winter Session
ages 4-8: This class is what I do with my own darling littles in this age group! It’s all about the tactile nature of clay and learning how it responds to their touch. Students will get their creative juices flowing and choose their own forms to focus on with my guidance. As always, the pinch pots and little tiles will be the starting points. By the end of the 6-week course they will have completed several tiny pots. Clay body will be stoneware.
