KIDS CLASSES

Most of our classes are family-friendly and kids are welcome. We have added afternoon classes during the middle of the week for afternoon family fun. But sometimes we must set boundaries on the age of the child. Always check with the studio first before bringing a child to any regularly scheduled class.

Potter'S WheeL

Kids Potter's Wheel Classes

Let Kids Take the Wheel

When most people think of a pottery-making class, they probably think of an instructor throwing clay onto a potter’s wheel. Wheel throwing is a term used by many professional potters to create their ceramic pieces. 

Learning to create your own ceramic pieces is both fun and challenging. Kids learning this skill will learn how to make forms on the wheel. How to work with clay in its different stages and the process of glazing their own piece. MIY offers Potter's Wheel classes ages 10 and up  and  different levels. We welcome families and friends to come and create with us. 

Hand Building

Kids Hand Building

ALL HANDS ON CLAY

Getting to work with clay is truly an hands-on experience for kids. Hand Building with clay is messy, fun, and easier for most kids than the potter's wheel. Kids will get to learn techniques use to build different forms from scratch out of clay. They will be guided by an MIY instructor as they learn how pinching, coiling, and slabing will help them create forms. This is a great class where they can use their imagination and creative skills to make something unique.

They will go through the complete process of creating a ceramic piece. 

As with most of our classes, we invite a multi-generational experience where kids can learn alongside their family members as well as learning with other kids.  Check out our Schedule to see our kids only classes and regular classes where most ages are welcome to create together.

Creating Piece by Piece

MIY offers Mosaic classes where children learn to piece together a mosaic piece of their liking. Getting to choose a form and then picking out ceramic and glass pieces to complete a mosaic they and you will be proud of. The Mosaic creative process is exciting and fun. 

The class is guided by our MIY instructor who will make sure safety rules and guidelines are adhered to while creating. They will also provide guidance to help kids with the creative mosaic process which includes grouting their own piece.  

Paint your Own Ceramics

Kids Paint your own ceramics

You can Paint your OWn Way

Painting your own ceramic piece is a fun and creative activity for kids. Kids get to choose a ceramic piece and glazing to paint their own pieces. Our MIY instructor will help guide and provide instruction. The kids provide their creativity and in return get a wonderful keepsake of their time at MIY. Pieces are left at the studio for firing and MIY will contact you when it is available for pick up.

This is a great activity for kids of most ages and enjoyed with families and friends. You can look through our schedule to check for Paint your Own Ceramics classes, or you can contact MIY for the availability of studio time for this fun activity.
