Its time for another session of Pre-K Clay at Your Creation Station! Our class is geared to aspiring pre-school potters aged 3-5 years old. The half hour workshop runs six Fridays starting September 9 at 10 AM. We’ll make a themed project out of clay one week and then paint it the next.
The workshop is modeled after the highly successful weekly Ceramics Lunch Bunch Steve has been doing for the last six years in North Wilmington. On the clay days, we pick a theme and use our imagination to create a project along those lines. The clay dries and gets fired before we paint it the next week. At this age, the children’s imaginations are boundless. While some pieces may look more realistic than others, every one of them comes complete with a story attached to it. What looks like a blob of clay smooshed on top of another blob of clay to an adult eye is really a magic wand that turns the grass underneath it rainbow colors to the eye who created it. Its not all imagination though, you’ll be amazed at how quickly and completely the children pick up on the ceramic process. After the six weeks are up, they’ll be able to explain how the clay needs to dry before its fired, how it changes during the fire and how the colors change after the glaze fire.
The cost of the class is $60 and includes all the material. Participation is limited to ten children. Parents may stay but they are encouraged to drop the children off and grab a cup of coffee or pretzel while we create. Call to reserve your spot today.
