Tire City Potters is proud to announce we will be hosting a summer camp this upcoming 2019 season. We will offer half and full day camp cycles for a 5 day camp. Aspiring potters, kids who love to create, build and get messy from ages 9-13 are invited to come learn about the ceramic process and various techniques to manipulate clay. Children attending need to be able to respond to instruction and be mindful of safety precautions given (Liability form will be provided). Our camp will feature an appropriate number of activities for half day campers and full day campers. The campers will learn how to prep clay, coil build, slab build and sculpt. As well as how to use the potters wheel, glaze, and even be a part of the firing process! See itinerary below. We ask that parents bring their children in clothes/shoes that can get messy. Also, please pack your little camper snacks, lunch, and water to stay hydrated.
There will be a $45 deposit for every camper and the additional amount of campers fee will be expected the first day of camp.
