Summer sculpture: Mermaids, Sea caves and Ice cream! $70
Pottery might even be more fun now, then during the school year! Your child can have a quality non-screen activity to enjoy and can take the whole summer to perfect each creation during this flexible program.

Projects are not due for kiln firing until mid-September!

Pottery instruction for 6 projects plus glazing tips will be emailed to you each Friday as a YouTube video link; ready for you to engage in according to your own schedule at home or on holiday! All clay and glaze supplies included!

It’s such nice weather so working outside might be a great way to be inspired by nature. Especially when creating sculptures of sea stars and seahorses, or maybe a rabbit shaped veggie marker for your carrots!  It might even be fun to make a strawberry shaped tile. Other projects include mermaid or sea monster sculpture, an ice cream bowl and a sea cave treasure box!

Or, perhaps you would like to use your clay to create a whimsical wind chime instead, It’s up to you!
