Earth Shapers After School Program
Course Time: 3:40pm ish – 5:00pm
Cost: $120 +gst
Ages: School Aged
- 4 classes, one per week on Wednesdays, over a period of 4 weeks. Basic techniques introduced. As this is an art class we do encourage students to bring thier interests and ideas to the table and enourage them to make what they are interested in making. There are also a few games we play for fun and to encourage ideas to come out.
- Basic Handbuilding techniques; coil rolling, slab making, carving, painting with underglaze, stamping and more
- Basic wheel techniques; learning to make a plate, bowl, and cup. Items are not required to look like the aforementioned so long as an attempt is made and in such basic techniques learned or reviewed.
- Number of pieces fired is depends on the child. Most kids end up with around 6 pieces from this class.
Fun fact: Children also develop teamwork and cleaning skills. Pottery is messy business. Cleaning up is a planned group effort that requires some "paying it forward" to others in the group and the to next group. This is usually a fun time for them as they are not at home and I am not their parent. LOL
Processing takes about 4 weeks. Please contact me at that time to arrange for pick up of the finished pieces.
