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 9 and up.


If they are under 9, they can stand at the pottery wheel and an instructor will sit at the wheel and teach them with hand over hand guidance.

What do they make?

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

  • Minions

  • Minecraft Steve

  • Animals

  • Christmas ornaments

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