School Field trips

Scout troops

Kids Clubs

School Field Trips, Scout troops and Kids Clubs can come learn about pottery through a more extensive lecture on where clay comes from, and the process it goes through to become a finish ceramic piece, followed by a tour of our studio.

There is also the option for hands-on experience where children can learn about hand-building and throwing on the pottery wheels.

Children who go through these mini-workshops qualify for scout badges with their troops.

Discounted group pricing is given to scout troops and kids clubs.

To schedule a session, you can look at our events calendar for availability and email: wheelart.potterystudios@gmail.com

Hand-building

Children learn the basics of making a pinch pot, and how they can add clay to the piece to create a cup or monster head. However, children are not limited to these projects and can let their creativity flow.
