In this 6-week class, kids ages 8 and up will learn the hand building techniques of pinch pots, coiling and slab construction to make functional, decorative and imaginary clay pieces!! During the fourth class, students will be introduced to wheel throwing and make a few pots on the pottery wheels! Once completed, all pieces will be bisque fired in the kiln and then students will learn how to apply glazes to their pottery. One more kiln firing and pieces will be ready to take home! In addition to instructor led projects, kids will have opportunities to use what they've learned to make their own clay creations during studio time! All materials and firings are included in class fee. Kids are encouraged to wear play clothes to the pottery studio and are welcome to bring water bottles or other drinks. Kids' Studio Tuesdays meet from 3:30-5:30. Instructor: Gin Scott Gin is the owner of Create Pottery Studio and loves teaching kids' classes! She and her husband Rhyne live in Statesville and after raising their 3 children, Ben, Abby and Luke and a rewarding career of over 30 years as a Speech-Language Pathologist she opened the studio in 2019. Gin wanted to share her joy for clay with others and to build a community of makers. She took her first pottery class many years ago at Mitchell Community College and Bruce Jordan was her instructor! Gin considers herself a hand builder, using slab construction to make most of her pieces and tiles. She has taught Kids' Studio, "Taste of Clay" and Beginning Hand Building classes and several clay workshops for kids and adults. Gin is very grateful to be able to share her favorite way of making art with others!!
