CyclePottery Kids’ camps provide a safe, supportive and fun atmosphere for young students to explore their creativity. Small camp sizes ensure students receive individual attention from instructors!
Over the course of 3-5 days, campers will learn how to use a potter’s wheel to throw functional stoneware forms and hand build with professional production potter Kathryn Kothe Roszko, and co-taught by sculptor Jocelyn Gozdowski.
For the non-beginners, they will learn how to advance to making lids, handles, and spouts for more complicated vessels.
5 Day Camps: Monday and Tuesday will focus on wheel throwing. Wednesday and Thursday campers will have handbuilding projects, work on different altering and decorating techniques, and may still work on the wheel. Thursday morning students will learn/help load into the kiln any greenware ready for the bisque fire. Friday we will all unload the bisque fire, wash, wax and glaze pots for the final glaze fire.
3 Day Camps will focus on producing work Tuesday and Wednesday and finishing their pieces on Thursday by trimming and decorating their pots. Kathryn will bisque fire, glaze and glaze fire their pieces after camp ends.
Students should bring a snack and a lunch. We may eat outside and with the permission of the parents, we like to get out of the studio for a walk to a nearby cafe or grassy spot for a snack, lunch, or ice cream cones on nice summer days.
