Calling all children and parents/guardians who love tactile and manipulation materials! Come and experience this wonderful natural resource and learn pottery. You will be using two types of clay to make sculptural creations to then be fired. This workshop is designed for children who can sit with either a parent/guardian or alone and can listen to short instructions. Although clay is a natural material, it is the responsibility of the parent/guardian to monitor the child’s use.
