Animalia II
This is such a popular camp that we’re running it twice! Kids are welcome to take bothsessions. Returnees would be encouraged to take their projects to the next level— working on larger,more detailed pieces.

Musical Masterpieces:
Did you know that there are a number of musical instruments you can makeout of clay? Some of our possible projects are ocarinas, drums, rattles, and udus. Perfect for yourartistic music lover!

Native American:
Native Americans are known for their clay work and pottery. During this week, wewill study and practice styles and techniques specifically used by Native American cultures. Thesetechniques will encompass both making and decorating.

Wheel Throwing:
The name says it all! We’ll really focus on wheel throwing this week. Because ofthe demanding level of focus that this much sustained throwing requires, we recommend this camp onlyfor potters aged 10 and up.



Ages 8+: Wednesdays, September 7-October 26, 4-5:30. 8 weeks. $240

Ages 5-7: Thursdays, September 8-October 27, 4-5:30. 8 weeks. $240.

***Have a group of 5-8 that wants to take a class together? Let us know, we’ll try to coordinate one that best fits your schedule!***

At Sawmill Pottery, we believe in introducing kids at an early age to the tactile, creative art of pottery. Kids ages 5 and up can try everything we have to offer in the studio. They will learn handbuilding, wheel-throwing and painting, decorating, and glazing at an age appropriate level.
