Mountain Roots, Inc. has partnered with the Transylvania Community Arts Council to offer a weeklong pottery camp for kids and classes on Saturdays for kids and adults. The Pottery Camp will be held at the TC Arts Council on July 21-25. The morning session runs from 9:00 am to noon for kids aged 6-10 years old. The afternoon session runs from 1:30-4:30 p.m. for kids aged 11-15 years old. The 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 really 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.
