Youth Pottery Classes

Hands-on learning is an important part of how kids learn, and clay is a wonderful medium for them to express their creativity. In our youth pottery classes they will create something fun that they can use and enjoy every day in their homes.

Can my youth use the wheel?

Yes, they can use the pottery wheel independently if they are ages 10 and up.


If they are under 10, they can do hand building of both functional or sculptural forms

What do they make?

Each youth can hand build or wheel throw their own creation from a lump of clay. Some popular choices are:

  • Minions

  • Minecraft Steve

  • Animals

  • Christmas ornaments

Afterwards each student will decorate their own personal creative clay project.
