In July the TC Arts Council is teaming with Mountain Roots, Inc. to offer pottery classes at the TC Arts Council. Pottery workshops will be offered on July 9-13 and again on July 16-20. Pottery morning session runs 9 a.m.-noon for ages 6-10 and pottery afternoon session runs 1:30-4:30 p.m. for ages 10-15. Cost for the weeklong camp is $225 per camper.

During this week of pottery camp, students will have the opportunity to learn and practice basic hand-building skills, including the pinch, coil and slab techniques. This experiential camp provides half-day hands-on opportunities to be creative, meet other campers, and create some cool and useful art. Students will have the opportunity to paint on several of their own glazes (underglazes in various colors), and choose from a variety of colors for their other projects. All ware will be glazed in dinnerware safe glazes and will be available for pick-up within two weeks of camp. Shipping may also be arranged.
