Pottery Wheel Camps  (6 Years & up)

Get your hands dirty as you learn wheel throwing. Students of all skill levels are welcome.

We have the BEST pottery wheel camps in the city!

Every student (ages 6 and up) gets their own pottery wheel for the week to explore the joy and skill of throwing.

Students will learn wedging, centering, trimming, use of tools and surface decoration. Glazing techniques and some hand building rounds out this introductory camp.

Basic bowls and cylinders will be made and turned into useful objects.

Book FAST because these classes are very popular and have only 10 spots per week.

*To improve skill level, the class can be taken multiple times and the student can then proceed to Pottery Wheel All Day

Pottery Wheel is held every week in July and 2 weeks in August!! If your selected week is full, please text Nancy @513-406-4009 to be placed on our waiting list.

Covid -19 Policies

Covid -19 Policies

We will be following the Ohio issued guidelines for Schools

  • Class sizes are reduced to 9 in the classroom and 6 in the pottery wheel studio.  This was the recommendation for our space.  All children and teachers will wear a mask at all times.
  • Children will be seated 6 feet apart and will need to remain seated throughout the class. Students will not be permitted to walk around. If you KNOW that your child can not remain seated for 1 hour or will not wear a mask voluntarily, please do not send them to our studio. We will have a zero tolerance for breaking these rules. And the student will be asked to leave the class without a refund possibility. Please understand, this is for everyone’s safety.
  • We are offering virtual art lessons as an alternative to physically sitting in the class.
  • Each student will be given their own supplies to use during the class.   We are requesting students bring a shoe box or a plastic container for this purpose.
  • When a student leaves for the day, the table and chair will be sanitized by the teacher.
  • We will not be using aprons, so campers are encouraged to wear old cloths.
  • Students will be required to wear a mask in the main studio for pottery wheel. All wheels are 6 feet apart and spread out among 2 rooms. There will be reduced class size to 6 students.  Again, supplies will not be shared. Each person will have their own set of tools, sponge and towel for the week. It will be up to them to keep them clean. There will be a thorough sanitizing process after a student leaves the wheel. As usual, the campers will clean their area and then the teacher will do the sanitizing process. We will make every effort to keep students 6 feet apart while they are watching the instructor.
  • Teachers will always wear a mask when close to the children.
  • We will have sanitizers on each table for the students use.
  • Your child’s temperature will be taken upon entering the classroom each time.

Regretfully, we must suspend classes for the rest of this year for our 3, 4 and 5 year old students.  We do not believe that it is possible to keep them truly safe in our environment.

The same is true for birthday parties and girl scout outings.  They are being suspended until 2021.

This is a hugely different kind of experience than everyone is used to at the Art Workshop. But we will do our best to conduct fun classes in the safest way possible.
