Spoons! Who knew spoons could be so cute, cuddly and fun! lol
Spoons are a great opportunity for kids to make those pinch pots. Plus coil making and scratch and slipping.
These little orbs are rattles we call “spirit shakers”. They are based on a Native American tradition. Tiny pieces of clay are wrapped in paper and placed inside these hollow balls. When the paper burns off in the kiln, the tiny clay pieces are released making a fun sound.
Next we have wheel-thrown bowls that were then altered into animals. Don’t forget to scratch and slip!
Finally, I saw this pin on Pinterest and thought. We have to make these!!!
When the kids came to pick up their pots, we had grass seed and some instructions to make their very own chia heads. Fun stuff!
So this concludes pottery camp 2017. 600 pots later, the kids are going home with some great projects and memories to boot!
