One-day workshops and three-week camps just for kids this Spring and Summer
Three-hour workshops will be offered on Saturdays from 9am-12pm on April 30 and May 28, and include clay, tools, glazing, and firing for $75 per student. The Get Your Hands Dirty Junior Camp will meet 3-5:30PM on Mondays and Wednesdays for three consecutive weeks in June and July, and will include three separate projects. All clay, tools, glazing, and firings are included for $195 per student. Projects include building slab mirrors that will incorporate found objects, Rainbow Fish wall hangings, and piggy banks. Both the workshops and the camp will be taught by Hannah McGeehe, a graduate of Dartmouth College in New Hampshire who loves to sculpt things, play outdoors, and play with clay – a perfect guide for the junior clay enthusiast. Get Your Hands Dirty, Junior is for ages 8-12, and advance registration is required as class sizes are limited.
