This Pottery and Sculpture Camp offers a creative and interactive outlet that all children need. Campers will experience what it’s like to be a real pottery creator and get their hands dirty as they spin a real pottery wheel. Campers can use their creative and artistic skills to paint their pots and bowls or other pieces of art they create before they are put into a kiln for the final step. Finally, after several hours, the pots are ready for flower displays, holding fruit, or whatever else you may use them for. Each day, campers will get to create something magnificent to bring home with them.
