Wet Clay Class for Kids: The Coffee Potter

July 11, 2023 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am

$40.00

Kids ages 10-14 get creative while learning the basics of wheel throwing and creating their own unique beverage.

This is a two part class, with time in between to fire the created pottery pieces.

Part 1: In week #1 participants will be taught the fundamentals of wheel throwing, that lead to pulling a cylindrical figure that is the base of any drinking vessel. Any pieces made will be trimmed and fired before the students return for week #2.

Part 2: In the beginning of week #2, participants will paint the cylinders they made during the first class that were fired. They will be shown how pottery glazes work and can be combined. We will show them dozens of combo options and encourage them to invent their own. Then they will clean up, and go to the Square 7 kitchen to be taught how to make their very own handcrafted beverage! Espresso pulling, ingredient mixing, steaming, blending and the importance of presentation will all be shown.

Time Option 1: Part 1 (Wheel Throwing): Tuesday, July 11th from 9-10am Part 2 (Glazing & Barista Training): Tuesday, July 18th from 9-10am

Time Option 2: Part 1 (Wheel Throwing): Tuesday, July 11th from 10:30-11:30am Part 2 (Glazing & Barista Training) : Tuesday, July 18th from 10:30-11:30am
