CERAMICS with Cat

Teacher and artist Cat Ramsey  will be hosting this hand-building class in clay. In her class, kids will explore some different techniques for working with clay, creating pieces that the kids can use in their everyday lives as well as some more decorative/ sculptural works. On our last day together, we will spend some time glazing & kids’ works will later be fired. 

* We will not be working on the pottery wheel in this class*

Note: Your child’s pieces will not be sent home the week they are made. All of their work will need to dry completely before going through the first firing. Lydia will then clear-glaze the items that need to be glazed, fire them again, and then they will be ready for pick-up. You will receive an email from her when your child’s pieces are ready to be picked up:)
