Pottery Camps please view our online calendar for upcoming camps. Next full week camp is in December over the holidays.

Parents, with our economy struggling we have reduced the cost of our summer camps. Our NEW COST is $350/child per week. We have made a slight adjustment to the days activities but we will promise your kids will be safe, learning something new and having fun.

  • a hot lunch can be served for $7.00 per day.
  • all prices are GST extra
  • Create with fused glass for an additional $15/camper

 

Our camps offer the opportunity to hand-build clay projects, paint pre-fired bisqueware, and learn how to make a bowl or cup on the pottery wheel.

We encourage and help children from ages 5 to 13.

They will learn about the operation of a full service, working pottery studio and see how a wet clay project is transformed into a piece of
pottery by firing it to a temperature of 1,000 degrees C.

If a child can imagine it, then we can help create it!

Accommodation for up to 15 campers.

The camps will be delivered by a Clay for Kids instructor and camp assistant (if required due to size)
 

What you’ll want to know:

Cost includes: class and individual instruction, clay, aprons, tools, kiln firing, paints, glazes on wheel work and snacks. The clay projects will be dried in our studio and then fired after 2 weeks. We will either call or email for pick up of your child’s creations.

A Few Extras

Hand built projects will be ready for pick-up three weeks after your child’s camp. If these items are not picked up within 45 days after firing, they will be disposed of due to space limitations. Please note, while we take the greatest of precautions, these are clay pieces and there is a chance they may get broken during the drying and firing process.

A fenced-in grassed area is available at the rear of the building for the children during breaks. The children are escorted to a nearby park and playground during the lunch break. Videos are shown on a TV during lunch if the weather is inclement. A full-size refrigerator / freezer and microwave oven are available for food storage and preparation.

PD Mini-Camps please view our online calendar

Pre-register your kids to reserve your places. Cost is $60 for full day.

Mini camps are scheduled at the studio on teacher professional development days when there is no school for students in Calgary and surrounding areas.

We’ll be making specific clay projects and the kids can also select a pre-fired bisque ware piece to paint and take home that day. Every camper will have the opportunity to work on our “kid friendly” electric pottery wheel. These clay pieces are slip glazed while they are spinning around on the wheel, dried, fired, dipped in clear glaze and re-fired to create a hard shiny finish that’s food-safe.

We can provide a hot lunch for an additional $7 per child plus GST. The lunch is fruit, baby carrots or cucumber and a hot dog or cheese pizza. We always have juice and snack mix in the studio if someone needs a snack.
